The Credible platform will also help us expand into more clinical programs, and improve efficiency and productivity,” said Sherman Haggerty, director of business development and operations, VOA NCNN.

Behavioral health and human services organizations face several key challenges today, including:
- Increased demand for mental health and substance use disorder services. A recent study by Kaiser Family Foundation found that the number of adults reporting symptoms of anxiety and depression increased by 30% due to the pandemic. For those 18-24, 56% reported symptoms.
- A shift to telehealth. An article by McKinsey noted that telehealth utilization across all specialties has stabilized at levels 38 times higher than before the pandemic.
- The need to coordinate care. The number of clinics providing services as Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) is more than 430 operating in 40 states plus Washington, D.C. and Guam, building on the demonstration program funded by grants from Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and subsequent rounds of expansion grants.
