Just like our physical and nutritional health, our mental health is important. Having poor mental health can impact our day to day and lead to less satisfaction in life, less interest in careers and hobbies, and even isolate us from the ones we love.
Mental illness isn’t limited to words like “depression” or “anxiety,” but there are many mental illnesses we can be affected by in our lives, and it’s more common than you think.
1 in 5 adults (50 million) experienced mental illness in 2022.
5% of these adults reported suicidal thoughts.
At times it may be hard to find a timely appointment with mental health providers. One option is to use your group’s selected telemedicine provider (displayed in your member portal).
