Behavioral Health: 1 Strategy and 3 Tips

Mar 17, 2021

Over the last year, millions of families have been impacted by a quarantine, virtual school for children, decreased income, lay-offs, and health concerns - all resulting in increased stress and anxiety. How are you helping clients meet behavioral health needs for their employees? 

Today, I'm sharing a great strategy for behavioral health with 3 tips to address this hot topic with your clients.

CHALLENGE: Employees need increased behavioral health support

A recent study found 61% of employees say mental health symptoms have impacted their job performance. Employers have to address these needs and show concern for their team - while being cost-conscious. 

STRATEGY: Quantify the need vs. the cost of ignoring it 

Equip your clients with current findings on behavioral health needs with the infographic below that addresses…

  • How many suffer?
  • What are the barriers to treatment?
  • What is the cost of ignoring mental health?
  • How can employers use behavioral telehealth to address the issue?

TIPS: Use this infographic to start the conversation

A simple infographic can help you highlight this growing issue - and how a virtual care strategy can help.

  1. Send it prior to your next meeting as a pre-read to discuss.
  2. Present it to spark a conversation in your mid-year review.
  3. Use it as an education piece to all of your clients: “I’m hearing this is becoming more of an issue with some of my other clients. How is your team?”

Don’t shrink back from bringing new solutions when your clients need them most.

I didn’t want to go to urgent care or the ER. Using Doctors Online in my freshbenies membership, I went online to ask a doctor. The doctor responded and said to check my blood pressure. He followed up with the next day to make sure my numbers were OK. By then, the feeling was starting to go away. He told me if it persists to contact my doctor. It was great that I didn’t have to go somewhere and wait forever, and it was free.” - Kelli from Texas
