Jason Richmond on how C-Suite leaders should address employee mental health needs
August 31, 2021
Suzanne Delbanco speaks with Jason Richmond, Head of Consultant Relations at Ginger, a digital mental health care provider.
Jason Richmond explores the supply and demand imbalance between mental health patients and providers in the United States in 2021, and why the traditional provider network model doesn’t translate well into the mental health space. Jason describes the evolution that mental health care has gone through in recent years, transforming from a one-size-fits-all care program into a de-stigmatized spectrum of treatment plans, including the rise of new provider roles like that of behavioral health coaches. Finally, Jason offers advice for business leaders on how to de-stigmatize mental health care and use employee feedback to design a health benefits structure tailored to your covered population’s needs.
