The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated mental health issues in the U.S. at an astonishing rate, with a swell of stress and anxiety that has consistently worsened since spring 2020. While there is much to be optimistic about, albeit cautiously, we are not out of the woods in terms of the mental health crisis: Our country will be coping with the emotional and mental fallout from COVID-19 for years to come. Cara McNulty, DPA, President, Aetna Behavioral Health, will describe the current mental health landscape, and how we can meet the need for care by focusing on screening and prevention, improving navigation and connecting people to the care they need including new virtual care options.
In this special Mental Health Month webinar, you will hear about:
How COVID-19 has affected mental wellbeing over the last year, and what Aetna foresees as the long-term impacts moving forward.
From managing remote work to facilitating a return to work, how employers can continue to support the mental health needs of employees.
How access to care and services have evolved due to COVID-19, and the latest tools and resources from Aetna to meet the mental health of the most vulnerable populations, including young adults and female caregivers.
