Employee Perspectives on their Mental Health During COVID-19

A new survey from the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions and Lyra Health shows American workers are grappling with serious mental health impacts from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Watch the on-demand webinar for a discussion of the survey’s findings and what they mean for employers. Including how:

  • Over 80% of workers report that recent events have negatively impacted their mental health and 65% say it’s affecting their ability to work
  • Only 14% of those in distress have sought care and most are paying out of pocket
  • Workers who feel unsupported by their employer are twice as likely to be considering a career change
  • Steps employers can take to provide much-needed support to their teams during these unprecedented times
