Addressing Behavioral Health and the Aftermath of COVID-19 in the Workplace

Even before the pandemic, behavioral health was a growing priority for employers and health plans. Today, urgency to address mental health concerns has skyrocketed as we begin to reckon with the profound and lasting impacts of prolonged stress, isolation, economic and political turmoil, and loss of normalcy brought on by COVID-19. After months of operating in crisis mode, many may experience delayed reactions to the trauma of the past year.

Hope is on the horizon as U.S. vaccinations progress, local economies reopen, and schools and offices begin to resume in-person operations. But with reopening comes a new set of challenges for healthcare and benefits leaders as they grapple with resuming a sense of normalcy and routine, reentering the workplace, and providing robust mental health support for adults and their adolescent children, who are particularly susceptible to stress and depression after a year of remote learning and social isolation.

Listen to Dr. David Grodberg, chief medical officer at BrightlineSusan Wyatt, head of Customer Success at Lyra Health, and Mary Cain, senior director of Clinical Strategy and Behavior Change at Castlight Health for a conversation on providing comprehensive behavioral health support amid delicate and quickly-changing reopening dynamics.

In this on-demand webinar, we’ll cover key questions such as:

  • As local guidelines evolve, offices and schools reopen, and safety protocols relax, what factors should HR leaders consider as they balance updating policies with supporting physical and emotional wellbeing among their populations?
  • What are best practices for taking care of employees and members as they manage ongoing grief, stress, and loss and how can we tailor support for vulnerable populations?
  • How can we integrate behavioral health into a holistic wellbeing strategy that supports whole-person health?
