The behavioral health conditions with the fastest-growing demand

Overall demand for behavioral healthcare has increased 20.1 percent since the first quarter of 2019, according to an analysis from Trilliant Health. 

Trilliant analyzed claims from its all-payer database to determine how demand for behavioral health services has grown since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Anxiety disorders and eating disorders saw the largest increase in claims from 2019, while claims for ADHD and schizophrenia decreased slightly over the time period. 

Here's how claims for seven behavioral health conditions have changed from the beginning of 2019 to the end of 2022:
