The challenge

US employers face significant financial costs and losses due to workplace stress. Workplace stress costs US employers an estimated $300 billion annually in healthcare costs, absenteeism, and lost productivity.

Overstressed employees are at risk of burnout, disengagement, increased sick leave, and conflicts with colleagues. True Sage’s corporate program offers solutions to these issues and helps employees achieve a healthier work-life balance.

In response to the high costs of workplace stress, corporate wellness programs have become increasingly popular over the past decade, aimed at promoting healthy choices among employees. However, these programs tend to focus on weight loss through exercise and diet. Implementing and maintaining employee interest can be challenging because they do not deal with underlying causality.

True Sage takes a different approach, acknowledging and addressing the emotional and mental health challenges often underlying physical health problems.

True Sage offers enterprise mental health wellness solutions for healthcare professionals and organizations. Our program supplements existing healthcare programs with cost-effective mental health solutions.

Through partnering with us, healthcare providers and employers can offer effective mental health solutions that deal with underlying causality and thus enhance overall health and wellness, reduce healthcare costs, and boost productivity. Our personalized program is a budget-friendly alternative to expensive one-on-one therapy and has been proven to reduce medical visits. While it is not a substitute for necessary office visits with healthcare providers, the True Sage System complements and extends such efforts by inspiring patients to improve their mental health utilizing a root-cause approach.

Our program has been clinically demonstrated to address the underlying causes of stress, anxiety, depression, and addiction. These root causes are frequently related to childhood experiences of abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction, which can negatively affect an individual’s mental and physical well-being.

As we move beyond the pandemic, business and HR leaders must provide their teams with the necessary stress management skills to thrive. True Sage’s program offers a range of mindfulness programs, complemented by expert guidance, to support employees in even the largest organizations.

As a company, we care immensely about our customers and provide a range of wireless products and services to help them live healthy and independent lives. We feel the same commitment to our employees. It is important to me that we have one of the finest corporate wellness programs in San Diego and Dr. Alman is a big part of this program.

Adverse Childhood Experiences and Toxic stress

Fireside Chat With Dr. Felitti And Dr. Alman: 

How And Why Do Adverse Childhood Experiences Impact People In Their Daily Lives?

Our relationships and experiences, even from childhood, can significantly influence our health and overall well-being. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) refer to potentially traumatic events that take place before the age of 18. These experiences have a strong correlation with the development of chronic health issues, mental illnesses, and substance abuse problems during adolescence and adulthood. Moreover, ACEs can have detrimental effects on education, employment prospects, and earning potential. Thankfully, ACEs can be prevented.

To assess and measure ACEs, a standardized questionnaire called the ACEs questionnaire or ACEs survey is typically utilized. This tool enables researchers and professionals to gather valuable information about an individual’s childhood experiences and their potential long-term effects.

A 30-year collaboration

Dr. Vince Felitti and Dr. Brian Alman have collaborated extensively for over 30 years in the field of ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) and behavioral wellness. They both played crucial roles in the original ACE Study in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Kaiser Permanente’s Department of Preventive Medicine in the late 1990–a research project that explored the relationship between childhood trauma and adult health outcomes.
