QuickStat of the WEEK

The figure above is a bar chart showing that in 2012, about one half (52.6%) of mental health-related doctor visits made by adults were to psychiatrists, 34.9% to primary care physicians, and 12.6% to other physicians. In the Northeast, mental health-related visits were more frequently made to psychiatrists (63.6%) compared with primary care physicians (25.7%), whereas in other regions of the country the differences were not significant. The percentage of visits to other physicians was significantly lower compared with psychiatrists and compared with primary care physicians in all regions.
