The Growing Need for Better Access to Behavioral Health Support

Mental and substance abuse disorders and their downstream impacts are becoming a growing concern for employers – with costs to employers estimated at $225.8 billion each year. Notably, the financial impact goes beyond absenteeism to include presenteeism as well. Presenteeism, or individuals working with untreated illnesses, is estimated to cost employers $1,601 per person each year according to the same Inc. Magazine article.

Many employers are actively looking for better ways to offer their employees support in this area –  as they do for overall wellness and chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
