There is no doubt that mental health has come to the forefront of employee wellness. The pandemic shed a light on the need for mental health services and benefits for employees. In fact, 1 in 5 people experience some kind of mental health issue in a given year. So, what are employers doing to help support their people?
While many organizations have added mental health services through EAP’s and health plans, employees are still having a hard time finding the providers they need. According to a recent KFF survey, although 80% of employers reported that they had enough primary care providers in their network, only half (44%) state that they have enough behavioral health providers. How can we address this gap?
CHC Wellbeing is proud to partner with Thriveworks, an organization that helps bridge this gap by providing counseling and psychiatry support from top providers to your employees and their family. Far too often it can take three or more weeks to get an appointment with a specialist. We know this time is crucial, so with Thriveworks, you can book same- or next-day appointments. Additionally, with high-touch support, both in-person and online care, as well as evening and weekend sessions, flexibility is at the core of this service.
