“Reducing the occurrence of comorbid mental and physical disorders will require an integrated model combining medical and behavioral health care services. The window of opportunity is open for health insurers and employers to invest in employee assistance programs and telehealth platforms and build on a newfound acceptance of mental health services. Additionally, health care providers can mitigate the cost of care and improve their outcomes with an increased focus on interdisciplinary training that accounts for the common occurrence of both physical and mental health conditions. With a new approach to mental health services, we will see a noticeable decrease of stress levels, happier patients, and higher productivity in the workplace.”
Christopher Valerian is a health care executive.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “New strategies are needed for mental health treatment.”
