The Mental Health Paradox

Michael Petrasek et al. Benefits Q.


The authors review the evidence that mental health coverage pays for itself by reducing overall health care costs, satisfies and helps patients who receive it, reduces employee absenteeism and improves employee functioning. They then explain the factors contributing to the decline in mental health services valuations and what employers can do to minimize them.
