The Link Between Behavioral Health and Physical Health Is Stronger Than You Think

Mental health can have a significant impact on physical health. Expert panelists will explain what you need to do, watch for, and ask when navigating workers’ comp claims that include components such as mood disorders, trauma and stress-related disorders and substance use disorders. These issues impact a growing body of claims, especially now that several states are considering adding post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a covered condition.
