There is a compelling business case for effective treatment of mental health and substance use disorders. Access to quality mental health/addiction care - sometimes called behavioral health care - is essential because of the high prevalence of these conditions in the workplace and their impact on other health care costs and the corporate bottom line when left untreated.
Most employers know that a mentally healthy workforce is linked to lower medical costs. What employers may not know is how to get from A to B: How does a company change a mentally unhealthy workplace into a healthy workplace? The Partnership provides some insight into that question with this publication.
Produced by the National Business Group on Health, this publication provides an overview of employer-sponsored behavioral health services and recommendations for evaluating, designing and implementing behavioral health services.
Also from the National Business Group on Health, this publication provides information to help employers understand addiction, the prevalence of substance use disorders among working adults, and the costs associated with substance use disorders.
