Managed Health Network, Inc. announced its support of the national Stamp Out Stigma campaign, as a response to the negative perceptions of mental illness. It is estimated that one in four American adults will experience a mental illness in any year, but many of these people are afraid to seek help because of the stigmatization that occurs. Mental health concerns are differentiated from mental illness by ongoing signs that cause frequent stress and inhibit the ability to function normally. Health Net provides and administers health benefits to approximately 5.3 million individuals across the country. It also offers behavioral health, substance abuse, and employee assistance programs to positively impact those who suffer from mental illness.
