Brand Access Landscape and Outlook 2026: Mental Health Disorders

Many factors related to mental health therapies can have significant impact on brand access and patient adherence.

A notable driver of patient adherence is therapy side effects. While side effects vary by product and individual patient, most payers indicate that weight gain is the side effect most cited for patient switches.  Side effects impacting mental clarity, such as fatigue and dizziness, are also commonly cited as a reason to switch, since they can have a major impact on a patient’s daily life.
