Webinar Recording: Understanding Behavioral Health Disability & RTW

DMECResources, VEF Archives

Behavioral health conditions can be a significant contributing factor to disability, absenteeism, and loss of productivity in your workforce. Approximately 18%, or 1 in 5 American adults, experience mental illness in a given year, with higher incidence in Millennials and Generation Xers compared to Baby Boomers. Generational variations exist in awareness, incidence, and receptivity to treatment which can hinder or support an employee’s successful return to work.

This session explored the most common behavioral health conditions, symptom presentation, and progression of an illness, and presented creative options for facilitating success.
