As part of LifeSolutions, all employees are screened for depression using the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ)-9, and those who test positive are referred to a behavioral health or Employee Assistance Program (EAP) service.
This case study evaluated an employee population for behavioral health needs that had members engaged with programs for conditions such as diabetes and heart failure, as well as healthy pregnancy. Of the more than 150,000 members evaluated, more than 25,000 agreed to a referral to a behavioral health or Employee Assistance Program (EAP) service.
The image shows 86% of employees were given the health screening. The dashboard does not show an entire population has been screened for various reasons including employees who have been recently screened or are currently in care with a behavioral health specialist (therapist and/or psychiatrist).
Of the 86% of employees given an assessment, about 25% scored positive for depression or were evaluated for referral out of those evaluated. About 94% of this group, is referred to behavioral health or EAP services.
Lastly, about 70% of these employees or 25,000 agreed to a behavioral health or EAP referral.
