Addressing workforce mental and emotional health is a wellness strategy many organizations have been hesitant to embrace. However, with the emergence of the pandemic, mental health offerings have become increasingly necessary to address employee needs. Today’s guest, Darrell Moon, founder of Orriant, has discovered that managing population mental health can translate into spending far less on medical claims.

With more than 10 years of experience running psychiatric and medical hospitals across the country, Darrell Moon now applies his expertise as a speaker, CEO consultant, Healthcare Innovation Specialist, Forbes Business Council Member, and Forbes Leadership Contributor.

In this episode, Darrell discusses strategies that work in managing population mental health as well as practices that are less helpful. He offers tips on creating a culture of mental health awareness in the workplace and what barriers he believes make companies unwilling to address mental health.

Darrell shares a few strategies for proactively engaging employees with resources and how wellness professionals can make the case for mental health management to executives. Lastly, he leaves listeners with a tangible tip on helping people change behaviors.
