Managing mental health and substance use concerns

According to the National Institute of Health, about 1 in 5 Americans suffers from a diagnosable mental illness, yet, sadly, only about half of those that need treatment actually get the necessary help.

Mental health and substance use disorders can interfere with your overall health, disrupt your ability to perform on the job, and affect how well you adhere to a doctor-recommended plan of care.

Some chronic medical conditions—such as diabetes, asthma, and heart disease —also have emotional and stress-related triggers, so people who suffer from these conditions are more likely to experience mental health and substance abuse issues as well.

BCBSRI and our network of providers can help you manage many mental health and substance use concerns, including:

  • Mood disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Attention deficit disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders
  • Substance use/addiction
  • Medication, anger, and stress management
  • Coping with grief and loss
