The article reports on the results of a year long study which was conducted by the U.S. National Institute of Mental Health, was concerned with the mental health of employees, and was involved with United Behavioral Health, a large managed care company. Researchers involved in the study found that it is wise for employers to invest in mental health coverage for their employees by obtaining treatment for them and by providing psychotherapy for them via the telephone. They found that doing so improved employee health and reduced absenteeism.
