Overview

The National Alliance is a leading voice on future directions in mental health, standing in solidarity with coalitions, employers and other healthcare purchasers and allies who are committed to facing the systemic US mental health shortcomings head on.

Workplace Mental Health

Integrating Care to Advance Whole Person Health

The mental health of employees has a direct impact on healthcare costs and, with coexisting chronic conditions, employers need to adopt the best strategies to ensure access, quality and affordability. 

In addition to being a founding member of The Path Forward for Mental Health and Substance Use, the National Alliance, coalitions, employers, and other mental health advocates are working together to address MH/SU challenges and issues at the national level.

Mental Health Resources

Mental health conditions cost employers more than $100 billion and 217 million lost workdays each year, in addition to the cost of coexisting chronic conditions and productivity losses. These resources offer guidance to employers as they address workforce mental health issues.
