Member Benefits introduces NEA Mental Health Program

NEA Member Benefits began piloting an important new benefit Feb. 24 in response to members’ requests for a stress management solution.

The NEA Mental Health Program is designed to help members address the considerable mental health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and other stressors present in their lives.

Offered in partnership with Sanvello Healthcare, the NEA Mental Health Program is an evidence-based mobile app care solution created by clinical experts that enables members to access on-demand help for stress, anxiety and depression. The Sanvello app currently has over 3 million users.

The NEA Mental Health Program is available to members, spouses/domestic partners and eligible dependents in all 50 states.

The program consists of three main options, as follows:

  • Sanvello Premium App – Access all of the free components mentioned above, as well as enhanced tools including additional CBT-based guided journeys. Available at no cost for one month, and thereafter at a 25 percent discounted rate for direct-to-consumer subscribers (discounted cost is $6.75/month or $40.49/year). This option is available to individuals age 18 or older.
