United Behavioral Health promotes good mental health

Good health requires a sound mind, as well as a sound body. That’s why our UnitedHealthcare plan includes a mental health and substance abuse benefit. It helps you and your eligible family members address problems like depression and drug or alcohol abuse. By accessing UnitedHealthcare’s United Behavioral Health, you can enjoy the sense of security that comes from knowing that specialized care is there when you need it.

This mental health and substance abuse benefit gives you access to in-person support for a wide range of concerns, including:

  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Substance abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Schizophrenia

United Behavioral Health care managers are available around the clock to assist you during mental health or substance abuse emergencies (in potentially life threatening emergencies, always call 911 first). They can also answer your questions about mental health and substance abuse concerns or provide the names of the participating clinics, counselors and doctors nearest you. They’ll monitor your progress during treatment and help you receive the best services possible while helping to resolve any problems or concerns you might have regarding your treatment.

One toll-free call. That’s all it takes to put you in touch with an experienced specialist—someone who will answer any questions you might have about your benefits, as well as help you determine what types of service you might need. Every one of our care managers is a licensed clinical mental health professional, with proven expertise in matching an individual’s needs with the best resources possible.
