In this episode of the Health Unscripted Podcast, Eva Borden, president of Behavioral Health at Evernorth Health Services, sits down with Amy Ayrault, president of Evernorth’s new behavioral health provider practice, to discuss the current state of mental health in America and explore challenges in connecting people with quality mental health providers.
Poor mental health in the workforce can have a negative impact on a company’s bottom line. For example, research shows that employers see declines in work productivity from employees with symptoms of major depression. The problem is that many of the 45% of American adults struggling with mental health conditions are also struggling to find the care they need.
