  • Rethinking mental healthcare
    Christian Science Monitor
    De-institutionalization of mental patients was better than locking them away, but outpatient treatment has often been inadequate and underfunded. Now a new effort is being made to coax those experiencing mental problems into programs that gently support them and foster their reintegration into society.

      EMPLOYEES WHO DO NOT GET HELPED

    personal or mental problems costs money. Even one employee
    who doesn’t get helped by your EAP who accessed it, costs money.
    Absenteeism, distraction on the job, decreased productivity, health
    problems, illness, drug costs, disability claims. Survey employees as to why they won’t use your EAP.

    Making the business case for well-being
    Personnel Today
    If a business wants their employees to flourish rather than merely exist, a well-being program may provide the solution. The research shows that if people feel well in their work, they will be more productive. However, this seemingly obvious fact seems to escape most program providers and hard-nosed budget holders.

    Opinion: What makes behavioral healthcare leadership so hard?
    Behavioral Healthcare
    Dr. H. Steven Moffic writes, "In retrospect, I think one of the reasons I've been so fascinated to blog about successful leaders in other fields, and in other countries, is because of how hard it is to be a leader in behavioral healthcare in the United States. Just think about it for a while. Who comes to mind that is easily identifiable and recognizable as a public leader in our field, no matter what discipline?"

    Does depression hit women harder?
    The Daily Beast
    Women are more likely than men to suffer from depression. Women are more likely to suffer from anxiety, too, and sleep disorders, as well as a host of other emotional and medical problems. On the other end of the spectrum, men suffer more often from substance abuse issues and autism. But as it turns out, mental health issues do not scale up measure for measure on both sides — for women are more likely than men to struggle under the weight of many emotional disorders.
