CHG employees enjoying the benefits of good mental health

According to a recent study, over 47 million Americans suffered from some form of mental illness in 2021, and nearly 5% report seriously considering suicide. Fortunately, there’s help. The first line of defense in the battle for good mental health is removing the stigma of talking about mental illness by ensuring readily available resources.

When the pandemic hit, we knew we needed to make behavioral health resources easily available to all our people and their dependents. We have a variety of resources that all our people can access whenever they need. No matter how alone you feel, there is always help.” – Carrie Koncar, senior wellness specialist
