At Sutter Health Plus, we believe it’s important to care for both physical and mental wellness and encourage members to take advantage of their behavioral health benefits. This includes premium access to Sanvello—a top-rated app to help manage stress, anxiety, and depression 24/7—at no extra cost for members as part of the behavioral health benefits through U.S. Behavioral Health Plan, California (USBHPC), a subsidiary of Optum.
It’s important to balance working hours with a meaningful personal life, including self-care, family and friends, and the things you enjoy. Finding balance can sometimes be elusive and may require checking in with yourself to better manage your time.
Members have access to medically necessary care services for substance use disorders, including alcohol, through U.S. Behavioral Health Plan, California (USBHPC). This includes in-person or virtual individual and group visits with participating behavioral health providers, inpatient/outpatient treatment, and prescription drugs when medically necessary.
As we enter the new year, many people are reflecting on the challenging events of 2020—and those that continue to define our daily lives. Some people’s ability to prepare for and effectively respond to the ongoing ups and downs of the times may be waning.
This year has been a struggle for our social and emotional selves. It is natural to feel disheartened as events and plans we normally look forward to are happening virtually, postponed, or canceled entirely. From adopting remote work and distance learning to canceled vacations, weddings, and other family events, many people are grieving the loss of significant social interactions in their lives.
2020 was a year unlike any other. And yet, through all of the challenges, healthcare providers and health plans have displayed resilience, drove rapid technology innovations, and continuously showcased compassion and caring.
Sutter Health Plus members now have access to Sanvello—an app offering clinical techniques to help dial down the symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression—anytime, anywhere.
Sometimes balancing work and making time for loved ones, self-care and the things you enjoy doing can seem challenging. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance—especially in difficult times—is essential to your overall mental wellness. Help alleviate stress and avoid burnout with these tips.
In general, men and women have different attitudes about health. Men tend to put off regular checkups and medical care more so than women. When they finally do see a doctor, men are more likely to have a serious health condition. That is one reason why in the United States, on average, men can expect to live five fewer years than women.
It is normal and quite common to experience stress or anxiety during uncertain times. Adjusting to major life changes—such as transitioning to working from a home office, facing economic challenges, or helping children or teens navigate distance learning—can amplify daily pressures. Sutter Health Plus connects members to high-quality care and resources to support mental health in everyday life.
