Mental health is often an underlying condition for many physical diseases–studies show that people with depression are at higher risk for diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease, and other diseases. And around one-third of people with serious medical conditions also have symptoms of depression, such as low mood, sleep problems, and a loss of interest in activities. Mental health challenges not only undermine the body’s ability to heal, they also drive up costs. In fact, people with depression are 2 to 4 times more likely to increase overall medical spend compared to people without depression. The good news is that preventive interventions not only help people feel better, but also drive healthcare cost savings. For every $1 invested per year in prevention programs to support mental health, employers can save $2 to $4 on other expenses.
How can HR & Benefit leaders adopt a preventive approach to mental health that drives better whole health outcomes at lower cost?
