Behavioral Health Projected to Increase Following Pandemic Uncertainty
Capstone’s February 2021 Behavioral Healthcare Services Update reports Merger and acquisition (M&A) activity moderately increased in 2020, with 111 transactions compared to 103 in 2019. Notably, while other industries experienced a steep pandemic-driven drop-off in deal activity during Q2, the Behavioral Healthcare Services industry remained relatively stable. The industry is expected to see strong growth in 2021, as COVID-19 has proved not only a physical health crisis, but a mental health crisis as well due to prolonged lockdowns, job losses, and social isolation.
