Support, tools and resources to help members navigate behavioral health care for their dependents.
Provide support when it's needed most
Adolescence, or the phase of life from ages 10 to 19, can be a challenging time, and it often comes with an increased risk of mental and emotional health challenges.
The pandemic placed an even greater strain on youth and their families. Remote learning and canceled extracurricular activities left many teens feeling frustrated, anxious, hopeless and disconnected. At Optum, we understand that caring for a child’s mental health may mean parents and caregivers are sacrificing their own physical and emotional well-being.
That is why we partner with employers and health plans to offer a suite of solutions that support adolescent mental health needs as well as the needs of their parents and caregivers. Download the fact sheet to learn more.
