Behavioral Health

Your member’s behavioral health can directly affect their physical health, wellbeing and their quality of work. The National Network of Depression Centers says depression ranks in the top 3 workplace issues, with family crisis and stress.

The US Surgeon General recently said that people do not feel that their workplace is supporting their mental health and well-being in the way they need. Some people may not even be aware they are struggling, and some are reluctant to seek treatment. There’s a lot you can do to create a happier, healthier workplace — and it all begins with knowing how to support your member’s behavioral health.
