The Path Forward Initiative

Improving Access to Effective Treatment

While employees face tremendous challenges in locating and accessing timely and effective mental health and substance use treatment, more and more employers identify access to effective treatment as a priority, especially with rates of suicide and drug-related deaths at record levels.
