An important message from our CEO, Alex Stavros.

"I wanted to take a moment to share an important issue that affects us all – mental health coverage for youth across the United States.

At Embark, we believe - as do our payor partners and many others - behavioral health benefits should have parity with medical benefits. However, the current health benefit structure might impose limits to accessing needed care, treatment, and services. On behalf of Embark, and along with over 9,000 other organizations, I recently submitted comments to the U.S. Departments of the Treasury, Labor, and Health and Human Services supporting the proposed amendments to regulations implementing the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA).

Last year alone, almost 4,000 youth were unable to access Embark's unique, evidence-based treatment model due to denied mental health care coverage.

Collaboration with state and local agencies, payors, health plans, other stakeholders, and data collection will provide insight into how we can improve access to care through real and sustainable change. There is still work to be done to ensure timely and equitable coverage for all. Below is a link to an internal memo sent to the Embark team. Thank you for your support on this important issue."



I want to share Embark’s position on a very important and relevant issue, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA). As a leading behavi

11/12/2023

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the many decisions and jargon that go along with learning about mental health treatment. A term commonly used in the behavioral health industry is “continuum of care.” But what IS that?
---
A continuum of care provides different levels of service and programming based on an individual’s changing needs. The continuum is meant to be used to “step up” or “step down” services and treatment intensity. Stepping up means moving to a more intensive environment (e.g., going from a partial hospitalization program [PHP], a type of outpatient care, to residential treatment, where someone gets treatment while living at a program facility). Stepping down means moving to a less intensive environment (e.g., going from residential treatment to a PHP).

Depression symptoms can include feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and anxiety as well as getting too much or too little sleep. Embark Vice President of Clinical Development and Training Dr. Rob Gent, who has a doctorate in psychology, states; It’s important to help young people with depression because the condition taints their way of thinking and emotions. Over time, that tainted thought process affects how they feel and react, which can lead to making poor decisions.
