Mental Health Awareness Month: Resources for Anthem Blue Cross Members
Mental health conditions affect many people worldwide. Learn how to overcome the stigma of mental health care and find important resources you can trust.
Experiencing anxiety once in a while is normal. Certain life events, such as having a baby or starting a new career, can cause anxiety. It’s how our bodies respond to situations we find scary or dangerous.
Constant anxiety, however, can make certain health issues worse. There are also medical problems that develop over time as a result of prolonged or frequent anxiety. It’s important to learn how to manage your anxiety, so you can take care of your overall physical health.
Understanding and Talking about Mental Health Stigma and Mental Health Conditions
The mind and body are linked, but conversations about mental health can be tougher than discussing physical health. Let’s work together to learn more about mental health stigma and mental health conditions – and how to talk about them.

Mental healthcare is an important part of your overall well-being. Below are tools to help you find the right care for you and use your plan’s benefits for mental health care.
