More Young Adults Seeking Mental Health Care

In a blog post on GoodTherapy.org, Zawn Villines writes more young adults are seeking mental health care after the Affordable Care Act. Specifically,  “prior to the advent of Obamacare, 31% of these young adults had sought mental health care. After the law went into effect, the number increased slightly, to 33%. Although the increase is small, 26- to 35-year-olds actually saw a downturn in access to mental health care during the same time period, suggesting that the slight percentage bump is a significant one. “
