Help navigating the complex mental health care system

Mental Health Navigator is a confidential, compassionate resource to guide plan members to appropriate care—whether they’re experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, or another mental health issue.

Expert assessment

A psychologist and/or psychiatrist reviews the member’s situation and speaks with them via a video call. It’s all about establishing the right diagnosis, treatment plan, and medication (if needed). Findings and recommendations are captured in a clinical report and action plan.

Icon 24/7 Telemedicine smartphone and 24 hours turnaround


An actionable plan, caring support

The Navigator (a registered nurse or social worker) reviews the action plan with the member, connects them with the right resources, and provides support throughout their journey.

45% anxiety, 41% depression, 31% stress
