Keep calm with mental health care by Evernorth Confide*

Life’s challenges can affect your overall well-being so it’s important to make mental health care a priority. Sometimes that’s difficult to do when you can’t find the care you need or where to start, but don't delay getting help.

Concordia Health Plan members -- and members of their households -- have a new resource to get them started down a mental wellness path: the Evernorth Confide Behavioral Health Navigator.

Through Evernorth Confide's enhanced EAP, members have access to expanded mental health care solutions, including personalized navigation designed to break down the most common barriers to getting behavioral health care.
