Millennium Live | A Leadership & Discovery Podcast

Jan 8 2024 • 22 mins

In the first episode of 2024, we delve into the transformative world of life-changing mental health care, no matter who you are, where you are, or what you’re going through. Jeremy Keim, the Vice President of Commercial at Brightside Health, with an impressive 20-year background in strategic healthcare, has been on a mission to bridge the gap between the existing healthcare system and the crucial mental health care that people desperately need. Our healthcare system, unfortunately, falls short for many individuals in need, especially when it comes to mental health. Shockingly, over 75% of those struggling with anxiety and depression aren't receiving the quality care they deserve.

Discover how virtual mental health care is breaking barriers and providing accessible, effective solutions for individuals facing mental health challenges. Jeremy shares insights into Brightside Health's innovative approach, how they’re tackling elevated suicide risk with a program called Crisis Care, and ways hospitals and health systems can take a proactive approach to expand access to support.

Join us as we explore the life-changing impact of virtual mental health care and how individuals like Jeremy are driving positive change in the landscape of mental healthcare. Tune in to gain a new perspective on the possibilities that technology and dedicated professionals bring to the forefront of mental health support.
