Taking action: meeting the growing need for mental health care

Past event date: Oct 22, 2020
Hosted by Employee Benefit News & Employee Benefit Adviser

The pandemic, growing racial justice movement and economic hardship are pushing people to seek help, and further breaking down the stigma associated with mental health support. Over 40 percent of Americans now report symptoms of anxiety and depression - up from only 8 percent with symptoms of anxiety and 6 percent with symptoms of depression in 20191. In times of uncertainty, how can you best support your employees from the point of recognizing a problem to providing accessible mental health care? Thankfully there are several approaches employers can take to care for their employees.

During this on-demand webinar employers and benefit advisors will learn:

  • The signs employees may be struggling
  • How to discuss mental health with employees
  • Ways to break down barriers to improve mental health
  • Real world examples of impactful mental health benefit designs
