Original Program Date: May 2019 (available for on-demand viewing through August 2019)

Program length: 60 minutes

New research from Ginger's 2019 Workforce Attitudes Towards Behavioral Health Report reveals a shifting tide in the way workers perceive and prioritize behavioral health. In this webcast, you'll examine the findings on behavioral health care in the workplace and you'll hear from Ginger's national medical director, psychologist Dr. Dana Udall, on how employers can take action on the key insights from the report.

Specifically, you'll learn:
  • The surprising trends around how workplace stress affects younger generations
  • Why 81 percent of workers face obstacles in accessing behavioral health services
  • The importance of mental health benefits to job seekers
  • How attitudes toward behavioral health services are changing

Currently, as national medical director at Ginger, Udall leads the clinical team to provide continuous, collaborative care through 24/7 emotional health coaching and on-demand teletherapy and telepsychiatry.
