Battling a health concern is challenging enough, add to that the stress and anxiety navigating the healthcare system can bring and it’s no wonder more people don’t get the help they need.

Support for Families
Patient Navigators can help families lower their stress so they can more effectively help manage their loved ones’ care. We’re here to not only help the individual who needs treatment, but the entire family that supports them too!
We understand that you have your own concerns and needs and we are here to help address for you as well. We will work together to develop a plan of healing for the entire family system.
Support for Employers
Families are not the only ones impacted by an individual’s behavioral health issue. One in five adults in the U.S. will experience a mental illness each year, yet only one in three who need help will get it.
With a patient navigator in place to assist your staff, your HR director is freed up from the time consuming (and sometimes stressful) job of helping an individual find the right behavioral treatment they need. HR departments are often not trained or experienced in assisting individuals with mental health issues, which also often means employees are simply not getting the right care. Together we can do better.
The potential benefits of supporting employee mental health include:
- Increased Productivity: Research suggests that employees treated for depression are more productive at work. And some studies indicate that treatment of depression reduces absenteeism and presenteeism by as much as 40 to 60 percent.
- Increased Retention: In a recent survey of more than 1,500 employees nationwide, more than a third of the respondents said they had left a job due at least in part to mental health issues. Of these, 59 percent said mental health was the primary reason for their departure.
- Lower Health Care and Disability Fees: The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that adults with serious mental illnesses are twice as likely to suffer from cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
Simply said? The cost of an organization doing nothing for their employees is higher than investing in evidence-based prevention and help finding the individual the right treatments.
