Mental health and substance misuse have a strong connection. Approximately half of those who experience a mental illness during their lives also experience a substance use disorder and vice versa. To further compound the situation, adults have reported symptoms of anxiety and depressive disorders at an alarming rate of 4 in 10 individuals, compared to 1 in 10 pre-pandemic. MAP’s comprehensive peer services bundle includes a personally matched peer specialist with scheduled sessions, 24/7 on-demand access, online peer-led group sessions, family support and a mobile application.
“Our country faces an unprecedented need of accessible support services for mental health and substance misuse. We are honored to work with a leading health service company like Cigna to reach and serve many Americans who need additional support now more than ever,” said Jacob Levenson, Founder and CEO, MAP Health Management.
