Government employees need convenient care

Just as public servants are essential for sustaining our society’s welfare, they deserve flexible and accessible healthcare to address mental health challenges and perform better at their jobs and in life. Government employees working in public health-related roles may be at particular risk of mental health conditions, according to several studies:


More than 1/2 reported mental health problems during COVID-19


reported symptoms of at least one mental health condition in the prior two weeks


The prevalence of PTSD was 10 to 20% higher than for frontline health workers and the general public

Address the unique stressors facing government employees

Mental health challenges have significantly impacted government employees, especially those who worked in the public health sector and other public-facing roles during the pandemic. Talkspace collaborates with employers in the government and public health sectors to address the unique mental health struggles of their employees.

State Government

State government employees may face high stress levels due to factors such as strict deadlines, complex decision-making processes, and the need to please multiple stakeholders.

Local Government

Local government personnel have their own challenges, as they’re responsible for managing essential community services while dealing with competing interests and budget constraints — a constant juggling act that may lead to burnout and related issues affecting overall mental health.
