Barry M. Smith, chairman and CEO of Magellan Health, Inc., and Sam K. Srivastava, CEO of Magellan Healthcare, released the following statement marking the observance of Mental Health Awareness Month in May.
“Support, education and advocacy. Those are just a few of the ways Magellan Health supports the millions of Americans who live with mental health challenges on a daily basis. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), one in five adults in America experiences mental illness. This diagnosis can translate into fear and isolation, due to the stigma attached to it. We believe that those among us who are challenged by mental illness may need a helping hand to get the support and care they need.
"As a company, when we say ‘Magellan Cares,’ we mean it. We strive to incorporate this idea into everything we do. Magellan Healthcare guides one in six Americans to live healthier and more fulfilling lives. During the month of May, our employees will take part in mental health awareness activities across the country. It is just one way we try to combat stigma and support our families, friends and colleagues who live with mental illness.”
