Virtual Mental Health Series, Part 4: Global Approaches to Address Access and Stigma

November 19, 2019

November 19, 2019             

Mental health and substance use disorders are the leading contributors to years lived with disability around the world. While cost-effective treatments exist, many people who need care don’t receive it due to problems with stigma, access, resources or costs. Employers play an important role in addressing the barriers to mental health care globally. However, the context, culture and details vary greatly between countries, making both a global strategy and a local understanding essential for effectively supporting the workforce’s mental health needs.

Attend this Virtual Summit to hear from global and local experts on how government officials and providers in key markets for global employers are addressing access, stigma, and other mental health challenges through regulatory, EAP and health system means.

Note: Webinar registrants are invited to submit weight-related communication materials for the speaker to evaluate and offer feedback during the webinar. If featured, any communication materials from your company will be de-identified. Please email to share your materials.
