MISSION VIEJO, Calif., Aug. 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MYnd Analytics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYND), a market leader in improving the delivery of mental health through the combination of telemedicine and data analytics/augmented intelligence, today announced a partnership with Employee Assistance Network, Inc. (EAN), a provider of Employee Assistance Programs (EAP), managed behavioral healthcare services and work-related training and education programs throughout the United States with a concentration in the southeastern U.S.
Under the agreement, Arcadian will provide tele-EAP services for EAN’s customers through its provider network. An EAP is a program designed to provide confidential and professional assistance to help resolve issues that affect employees and their families. Traditional EAP programs typically require employees to physically go to a mental health professional’s office, which can be time consuming, expensive and may result in employees not seeking treatment. Arcadian’s tele-EAP service allows mental health professionals to work with employees using web-enabled video conferencing, which helps employees and their families deal with an assortment of personal challenges. Arcadian will initially provide services through its provider network to EAN’s customers in Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia with the potential to provide referrals throughout the US.
Dawn Klug, Director of Operations at EAN, Inc., commented, “EAN is excited to partner with Arcadian Telepsychiatry to provide expanded EAP services outside of North Carolina. We see this as an opportunity to provide quality tele-EAP services through Arcadian’s panel of qualified clinicians trained in providing EAP counseling through secure video. We have found Arcadian to be efficient and professional. It’s so helpful to work with an organization that meets our expectations and needs for quality customer service.”
Robert Plotkin, CEO and Founder of Arcadian, commented, “We are honored to have been selected by EAN to provide tele-EAP services to its customers. In addition to the cost savings for employers, tele-EAP offers employees a more convenient solution that is designed to increase the number of employees participating in these services, in order to address problems before they affect the employees’ work performance, health, or well-being. Importantly, we see our tele-EAP program as an important contributor to our growth going forward.”
