BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERIES

Understanding the True Impact and Strategies That Drive Better Outcomes

Business professionals did not need a pandemic to understand the toll that behavioral health takes on the workplace. Most professionals understand that behavioral health problems such as anxiety, stress, and depression, are critical factors in absenteeism, reduced productivity, and increased healthcare costs and by investing in programs and strategies, will improve their employee’s mental wellbeing. However, most professionals likely miss the real costs and opportunities lost, due to mental health and substance abuse.  Organizations do not account for the role anxiety, stress, and depression play in many other physical illnesses and chronic diseases.

Join us as we explore the data, trends, and strategies that leading researchers, institutions, and organizations are using to help drive better outcomes in tackling behavioral health in today’s new world.

Join us: May 26, 2021 from 11am-12pm EST
Guest Speaker: Dr. James Tacci, MD, JD, MPH (FACOEM, FACPM), Medical Director, University of Rochester Medical Center

Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans have a mental health or substance use disorder1? Or that between 2007 and 2017, the percentage of medical claims associated with behavioral health (both mental illnesses and addictions) more than doubled2? This is why mental health is a daily topic being discussed in the workplace. Investing in employee’s wellbeing reduces overall costs and creates a culture of empathy, inclusion, and productivity. Employees are now looking to see what programs are in place to improve health and wellness and it is the employers’ job to provide the right tools and resources.

Learn how to reduce employee sick days, reduce staff turnover, and how employers can create a better workplace environment in this first webinar session.

During this session you will be introduced to the implications for employers…

  • To the business case for investing in mental health and well-being.
  • To direct interventions, which target mental health outcomes through education.
  • To indirect interventions, which target risk factors associated with depression and anxiety, such as obesity or physical activity.
  • To Stress Management Interventions (SMIs) targeted at employees at risk for stress.
  • To effective use of Digital Mental Health Interventions.

Behavioral health has always been complicated, but now more than ever, that is proven to be true.  Employers need to know what the data is telling us about the impact and the state of behavioral health in the workplace in 2021.  What questions should employers ask to find real solutions for today and the future of Mental Health?  There has been a seismic shift since March 2020 in the discussions around Mental health, but what does that mean for employers?  How should employers react to these discussions and what further questions should employers be asking?  What are the solutions that are proven to work?  Join Vital Incite and our panel of nationally recognized behavioral health experts to explore the answers to these questions. Meaningful Q&A will follow the session with the experts from Anthem, Optum, and Mine & Associates.

Key points for the conversation include:

  • How employers can expand access to quality care
  • Behavioral health’s shift to consumerism and what it means to employers.
  • Behavioral health services that employers should explore that are evidence-based and shown proven outcomes.
  • How innovation is shifting employees’ way of consuming mental health care and how employers should react to the shift
