Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Resources

Health Advocate

Mental illnesses affect 19% of the adult population, 46% of teenagers, and 13% of children each year. People struggling with their mental health may be in your family, live next door, work in the next cubicle or sit in the same church pew. Untreated mental illness can contribute to higher medical expenses, poorer performance at school and work, fewer employment opportunities, and increased risk of suicide.

Health Advocate has been helping Americans navigate the complexity of the healthcare system for over 19 years. They offer a full range of clinical and administrative services as well as behavioral health and wellness programs supported by medical claims data science and a technology platform that uses machine learning to drive people to engage in their health and well-being.
