Web Seminar  Beyond the EAP: How top employers are revolutionizing mental health

Feb. 22, 2018 | 1 PM ET/10 AM PT
Hosted by Employee Benefit News

From anxiety to the opioid epidemic, mental health conditions represent some of the most common and costly health issues in the United States. Yet employers often feel like they have few tools to address this monumental problem. With 20% of US adults living with a mental health condition—which, on average increases annual individual healthcare costs significantly—employers can no longer ignore the silent challenges millions of employees battle every day.

In this webinar, Sprint, a telecommunications company based in Kansas with 30,000 employees nationwide, will share their journey to becoming a leader in mental health. In addition, Big Health, a pioneer in digital medicine solutions for mental health, will share research on the barriers to effective mental health care for employees and how to overcome them. Finally, Castlight will dive into the preliminary findings of its Mental Health and Substance Use 2018 Report: Preliminary findings from research led by Castlight Health into millions of claims data from Castlight’s client base, assessing trends in diagnosis rates in the US and how they drive cost.

Key topics will include:

  • Employer Case Study: Sprint - How Sprint identified mental health as a key cost driver and transformed its mental health strategy.
  • Overcoming Barriers to Mental Health: Big Health’s overview of key challenges, such as stigma, access, and quality, and how leading employers are overcoming them
  • Mental Health and Substance Use 2018 Report: First of its kind research, led by Castlight Health into millions of claims data from Castlight’s client base assesses trends in diagnosis rates in the US and how they drive cost.
