Behavioral & Mental Health Programs Through Work

Support for life’s challenges

You have many demands on your time — work, family, finances, and maybe caring for elderly parents. Staying on top of it all can be challenging. Our behavioral health programs can provide you or a loved one with a path to recovery and resiliency. We offer specialized programs to help you get the right treatment for:

•       Depression
•       Anxiety
•       Alcohol abuse or dependency
•       Stress
•       Medical or psychiatric conditions

Understand what’s troubling you

Sometimes it’s hard to know the difference between everyday stress and something more serious. The Aetna Behavioral Health Assessment is an online resource that may be able to clarify what kinds of emotional or mental problems you have been experiencing. If you are working with a health care provider — or thinking about seeing one — it can help him or her design the most appropriate care plan.

Learn to make healthy choices every day

Yes, it is possible to find your own path to good health. Through our Simple Steps To A Healthier Life® program, you’ll get online wellness coaching programs that are included with your health benefits and insurance plan. And you’ll learn strategies to fit healthy living into your busy life — in simple steps, at your own pace. Our online programs can help you:

  • Deal with stress: Find out where your tension comes from and get proven strategies to stay calm under pressure.
