Cyndy Nayer Discusses the Link Between Physical and Mental Health

In recognition of Mental Health Month, Cyndy Nayer discusses the link between mental and physical health in her most recent video blog.   In the United States, mental health is often treated differently and separately than clinical or physical health, but as Cyndy points out, mental and physical health are ultimately part of the same human system.   Physical problems affect anxiety levels, which can lead to other mental health issues.

The facts speak for themselves:

Employers must examine the total costs of their workforce, identifying opportunities to create value-based benefits that screen for risk of depression and link to proficient mental health programs. Contracting with screening companies that include a depression screener is key, as is paying an incentive to primary care providers who include depression and mental health questions in their total collaborative care. The Lovelace Health Plan, as an example, has tackled mental health “head on” by using a short screen in their new value-based benefit program, and the leaders of Lovelace are encouraging other health plans and plan sponsors to make this bold move.

Ending mental health stigma is also paramount.  Patients should talk to their physicians about which medications they should be taking to manage their mental health, which medications they are taking that could interfere or cause poorer mental health, and whether they should seek a specialist beyond their primary care physician.
