Calm Health: Bridging the gap between mental and physical health care

Our mental and physical health are deeply intertwined, yet historically, mental and physical health are often treated separately by the healthcare system. In the U.S., two-thirds of primary care physicians are unable to refer patients to mental health services that are related to a physical health condition, even though many of these conditions can lead to anxiety and depression. It’s estimated that 10% to 15% of people with diabetes are also depressed, for example, and 25% of cancer patients also experience depression. In fact, when a mental health condition is comorbid with a chronic health condition, the total cost of care can be 2-8 times more.

In this webinar, Calm’s Chief Clinical Officer and SVP of Product will introduce Calm Health, a unique digital solution designed to bridge the gap between physical and mental health and engage users along their journey to whole-person health.

You’ll learn:

  • The science behind the mind-body connection
  • How Calm Health provides personalized recommendations based on mental health screenings
  • How Calm Health’s evidence-based programs support specific conditions, life stages, and industries
