5 ways to help employees find the behavioral health care they need

Behavioral Health white paper

With the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbating mental health conditions that already affected millions of Americans, it’s become increasingly important for employers to support their employees’ behavioral health care needs.

By working with UnitedHealthcare, employers can help employees find the behavioral health care they may need by: 

  • Promoting virtual care to help improve access
  • Building a benefits strategy that includes a full continuum of care
  • Offering a guided experience to support employees
  • Trying to reduce stigma, especially for at-risk populations
  • Reinforcing the connection between physical and behavioral health

The UnitedHealthcare behavioral health strategy is designed to support employees across a comprehensive continuum of care by promoting general well-being and treatment of behavioral health conditions such as substance use and depression. Earlier behavioral intervention may help maintain a healthier workforce and lower costs for everyone.
