Because treating only physical illness is like putting a Band-Aid on a broken bone.
Research has shown that between 20% and 30% of employees and their dependents struggle with an emotional health condition such as anxiety, depression and substance abuse. When these conditions are coupled with a chronic medical condition–like diabetes–health care costs for that individual can double or even triple. And employers often incur additional costs for disability and workers compensation claims as well as lost workforce productivity.
Emotional well-being is part of a strategic approach to overall health & wellness. The Johns Hopkins Balance program identifies employees who are either at risk or experiencing an emotional health condition. It directs them to the appropriate resources so they can get on the road to a healthier, more balanced life.
