Mental Health for the Whole Family: How Employers Can Make a Difference

June 13, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

At least once a month, over half of working parents miss or interrupt their workday to address a child’s mental health needs. (1) Children’s mental health concerns have been hiding in plain sight for many years, and the pandemic brought these issues to the forefront. Nearly 22% of children ages 3-17 have a diagnosed condition. The prevalence of mental health problems across U.S. children ranges from 15 – 60%. (2) Meanwhile, getting care can feel like finding a needle in a haystack.

Employers can help by providing access to age-appropriate mental health care for all employees and their dependent children. Join us to learn about clinically proven solutions for kids and teens, including virtual therapy, biofeedback and resources for parents.
