Behavioral Healthcare Services - Executive Summary Q4 2018

Q4 2018

Within the Behavioral Healthcare Services industry, companies that offered child and youth-oriented services accounted for 24.3% or 17 of the announced or closed mergers and acquisitions year-to-date. Activity in this segment has largely been driven by the national rise in children with autism (a 15.0% increase from 2016 to 2018, according to Autism Speaks) and the ongoing battle against opioid abuse (which is most prevalent among young adults ages 18-to-25 years old).
