Mindability's proven programs battle anxiety and depression

Based on 2010 statistics from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), that reported over 57.7 million Americans now experience mental health disorders annually, we view the program as a relevant, cost-effective solution to a significant challenge facing our nation.

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 26, 2010

Leaders at the Mindability Group recently joined nurse educators from Banner Health Care to showcase a state of the art program that battles anxiety, depression, and other emotional conditions at the National Western Institute of Nursing conference. "We want to congratulate the dedicated health care professionals who we have worked with to synthesize the benefits of 'The Road Map To Peace of Mind' program for the conference, as well as the larger effort surrounding the implementation within the Banner hospital system," remarked Mary Ann Zimmerman, Managing Director of Mindability. "Based on 2010 statistics from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), that reported over 57.7 million Americans now experience mental health disorders annually, we view the program as a relevant, cost-effective solution to a significant challenge facing our nation."

After learning about the volume of those experiencing emotional disorders, it makes many of us wonder: who is included in that number from our own circle of friends plus family? And how we can help them recover? "From our group's experience, we routinely treat people of all ages, nationalities, and demographics for stress, anxiety, depression, and other emotional conditions, added Dr. Michael Cofield. "Further, the cost to business and industry is approximately 25% of an affected employee's income. This individual cost translates to substantial business impact and according to NAMI's current report, workers with depression cost employers $44 billion per year. Taking this into account and given the extraordinary times we are living through, 'The Road Map To Peace of Mind' will certainly be one of the strategic solutions for both health care franchises and corporate business models that plan to expand."
