New Benefits invites you to join our webinar with MeMD, The 411 on Behavioral Health Solutions, on Thursday, October 4, at 11 am Central Time.
Mental health has been stigmatized as an issue people should keep to themselves, but if you check the latest headlines in your news feed, you’ll start to see a different attitude towards the subject. People are beginning to recognize the significance of poor mental health – how many people are affected, the detriment to physical health, and its impact on the workplace.
Employers are increasingly taking notice of the connection between poor mental health and productivity. Employees with poor mental health are less productive, miss more days of work, and have lower morale than their coworkers. These combined repercussions cost employers up to $105 billion each year.
With this large of an impact, the workplace has a responsibility to address employee mental health. To avoid added healthcare costs and lost productivity, employers can offer behavioral health counseling through telemedicine. Telebehavioral health enables employees to seek the treatment they need at their convenience, and from the privacy and comfort of home.
MeMD, one of the leading providers in telehealth, understood the growing need to address mental health more effectively and added behavioral health to their roster of services. “Providing behavioral health benefits via teletherapy allows employers to prioritize employees’ mental health in a cost-effective way, while also addressing access issues and improving confidentiality for employees who seek care,” said Kevin Wallquist, EVP of National Accounts and Health Plans for MeMD.
In our webinar, The 411 on Behavioral Health Solutions, MeMD’s Kevin Wallquist and Ali Cassidy (Senior Account Manager) present their solution for improving mental health at work. We’d love to have you join us! Please save your seat by registering through this link.
