WAUKESHA, Wis., March 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Empathia, Inc. has added Minneapolis-based Learn to Live – a national leader in the digital delivery of evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) tools – to its Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Student & Family Assistance Program (SFAP) service offerings.
Empathia’s clients can now incorporate Learn to Live’s interactive cognitive behavioral-based programs that address emotional health issues in an effective and confidential digital experience into their EAP. These programs provide much-needed access and affordable concepts and tools which are based on the proven fundamentals of CBT.
Employers are learning that mental health issues can impact the overall well-being of their employees, which in turn can lead to lost productivity time and increased disability claims. Many of those struggling are “silent sufferers” who do not seek treatment due to barriers including social stigmas, confidentiality concerns and geographic limitations, all of which are addressed by Learn to Live’s online platform.
“We’re proud to be working in partnership with Empathia to provide help to those struggling with emotional health and wellbeing challenges,” said Learn to Live CEO and co-founder Dale Cook. “Learn to Live’s platform provides a solution to those who may lack access or are reluctant to get help with emotional health issues. Our programs offer a personal online experience, 24/7 convenience, one-to-one real-time coaching and the proven effectiveness of CBT.”
“We know many individuals struggle to manage daily stresses, depression, insomnia, social anxiety and other mental health challenges,” said President & CEO Carol Wilson. “Empathia is committed to providing easy access to quality services. Learn to Live’s platform offers another path for improving mental health and emotional wellbeing that’s convenient, accessible and effective.”
Empathia now joins other leading health insurers, large employers and higher education institutions that offer Learn to Live’s emotional health programs to their members, employees and students. Learn to Live’s services are now available to more than 3.5 million members across the United States.
