World Mental Health Day, October 10, 2021, raised awareness of mental health issues around the world. In the months leading up to World Mental Health Day, we unified 8 organizations and rebranded to become Uprise Health. We connected impactful EAP, chronic care and mental health management services to focus on the powerful link between mind and body. Uprise Health has invested heavily in solutions to better address a broader, more complex set of mental health needs and unveiled our robust digital mental health offering. Together, our support solutions care for the total person and focus on how physical and mental disorders overlap, and how treatment between clinicians needs to be well-coordinated with clinically validated technology and appropriate timely care.
In the spirit of World Mental Health Day to transform and expand mental health awareness, Uprise Health launched our Mental Health Matters blog series. Uprise Health leaders shared their expertise and perspective on creating workplaces that value mental health and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality. Our featured series explores the building blocks of culture, including shaping organizations that promote the mental health and wellbeing of their teams.
