Kaiser Family Foundation: Access and Coverage for Mental Health Care: Findings from the 2022 KFF Women’s Health Survey

A Kaiser Family Foundation brief found that women were more likely than men to report needing mental health services in the past two years, but 40 percent did not seek treatment and 10 percent were unable to get help despite trying. Sixty percent of women had a telemedicine/telehealth visit in the past two years. Mental health care was the third most common reason women cited for accessing telehealth/telemedicine services, with 17 percent saying it was the primary purpose of their most recent telemedicine visit. The majority report that the quality of their telehealth visit was the same as an in-person visit.
