Reports and Surveys | February 3, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic has drawn attention to both the need for mental health benefits and their value to faculty and staff. Behavioral health conditions related to the pandemic include anxiety, depression, trauma, stress-related disorders and starting or increasing substance use to cope.
Likely in response to these trends, more colleges and universities are offering EAP mental and behavioral health benefits, according to Segal’s latest College and University Benefits Study (CUBS).
CUBS also found that a large majority of higher ed institutions are addressing two other sources of stress — financial issues and caregiving responsibilities — by offering benefits targeted to those needs.
The percentage of higher ed institutions offering several mental health services through employee assistance programs increased over the two years since the prior study.
