The NAMCP Medical Directors Mental & Behavioral Health Institute was formed to bring solutions to the mental health and behavioral health delivery system in order to utilize the appropriate treatment and to improve patient outcomes.



Our strategy is to:

  • Improve access to diagnosis and treatment through the appropriate healthcare professional

  • Perform preventative screening for mental issues

  • Integrate mental health into the total healthcare delivery system

Prevalence of the Problem

  • In any given year, 30% of the US population has a diagnosable mental illness or addictive disorder

  • 18.8 million adults in the US (over the age of 18) suffer from a mood disorder

  • According to the World Health Organization, 4 out of 10 leading causes in developed countries is mental illness

  • By 2020, Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) will be the leading cause of disability in the world for women and children
