Wiley Studies the Rise in Mental Health Issues Since the Pandemic

At the end of 2023, Wiley released the results of a survey in the report, “The Psychology Practitioner: Navigating High Demand, Burnout, and Telemedicine,” which finds that “[m]ental health practitioners are seeing an increasing number of patients since the pandemic, leading them to struggle with burnout and managing their own emotional health,” and thus “some patients may not be receiving the amount of care they need.” Wiley states, “Overall, 73% of practitioners surveyed noted an increase in their number of clients since the pandemic, and 55% said they are seeing a rise in clients requiring medication.”

Wiley continues, “Practitioners don’t foresee these problems ending anytime soon; in fact, they believe the situation will worsen. Most (83%) feel that the number of people seeking mental/emotional health services will increase five years from now.” Practitioners are generally positive about using AI to help in their practice (82% say so), and 55% have used AI tools at work.
