According to a recent study, over 47 million Americans suffered from some form of mental illness in 2021, and nearly 5% report seriously considering suicide. Fortunately, there’s help. The first line of defense in the battle for good mental health is removing the stigma of talking about mental illness by ensuring readily available resources.
CHG is committed to ensuring the overall health and well-being of our employees, a key component of which is mental health. We provide a wide array of behavioral health services to support our employees and their families.
“The health and well-being of our people has always been a priority at CHG. When the pandemic hit, we knew we needed to make behavioral health resources easily available to all our people and their dependents. We have a variety of resources that all our people can access whenever they need. No matter how alone you feel, there is always help.” – Carrie Koncar, senior wellness specialist
