The presentation will illustrate the journey of an employer determined to make mental health their business. Clearlink recognized through a detailed analysis of their medical claims and pharmacy data that mental health disorders were highly prevalent in their organization. In addition to driving their healthcare costs, they were gravely concerned about the well-being of their employees. Clearlink pursued an aggressive approach to getting employees the help they needed by positioning a mental health provider onsite at their company. They also worked to develop a rigorous internal marketing and communications plan to educate their employees and get rid of the stigma attached to mental health. Further, they worked collaboratively with their stakeholders and partners to integrate their strategy around combating mental health with their overall health and well-being strategy. Clearlink will demonstrate the positive impact they have made on their organization and the lives of their employees. After completing this session, participants will be able to: (1) Understand the challenges of trying to achieve wellbeing in a silo through experience of a fast-growing employer; (2) Gain confidence in the path to collaborate and integrate people and strategies cross-departmentally; and (3) Ignite change within the organizational strategy and illustrate measurable results.
