Supportive Mental Health Environment Can Save Companies Millions
(June 2, 2016)
Keeping mental health issues in the dark at work cannot only harm employees but damage company productivity and performance levels.
For an article with TheStreet, Interactive Health’s Behavioral Health Coordinator Dr. Colleen Fairbanks discusses the importance of effectively addressing mental and emotional health issues in the workplace.
Fairbanks cites an example of how an EAP can help. “A member wanted to obtain services through their employer’s EAP program, however, did not feel comfortable approaching human resources to obtain this information,” she says. “Because Interactive Health is focused on connecting all resources available to our members, it was able to provide our member with her EAP information while maintaining her workplace confidentiality.”
