Most psychotherapists agree that the mental health delivery system is broken. Where two or more psychotherapists are gathered together, complaints abound. While this article addresses the broken mechanics is the mental health delivery system, it does not even begin to address the mishandling of individual cases.

People, in general, and psychotherapists, in particular, are afraid to "buck the system." Fear masquerades in a variety of acting out, defensive behaviors, such as anger, denial, criticism, withdrawal and aggression.

This is especially true when discussing the managed care system. Most psychotherapists in the US have chosen to practice as in-network providers for the insurance companies. That means that the therapists have agreed to a discounted fee, in hopes of receiving more referrals, because they are in-network. It also means the therapist usually must have their services authorized prior to seeing the clients.

After all, our present mental health delivery system, which has been around since the early 1980s, has developed inbred power, not only in individuals but in the system itself. I can remember the anger of my clients 25 years ago, when the found their insurance company dictating the amount and kinds of service they could receive, but within five years, as a nation we accepted the managed care concept without a fight.

Therefore, I am challenging a very large, money-hungry system, established to feed on itself, but not adequately supply services that meet the needs of its members or the realistic needs of the health care providers.

So I challenge anyone to deny that our present mental health delivery system is fragile and broken. Here are eight reasons why;

Managed Care companies often outsource their customer service to India, Argentina or the Philippines, and benefits are quoted inaccurately by people struggling with basic language skills.
