Smartphone app helps service members and spouses improve overall health and wellness, manage stress and build resilience in a secure, confidential manner
FRISCO, Texas – May 3, 2022 – Magellan Health, Inc. today announced that its subsidiary, Magellan Federal, has launched a program that provides United States military families with personalized, digital behavioral health and well-being support by combining NeuroFlow's technology with evidence-based resources and clinical support provided by Magellan Healthcare.
The 18-month long first phase will be launched on three installations through the Military & Family Life Counseling (MFLC) program. Magellan’s MFLC counselors support the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy (MC&FP), Office of Military Community Support Programs (MCSP) in delivering confidential and anonymous non-medical counseling services to address and mitigate the challenges of military life. NeuroFlow will supplement Magellan’s MFLC counseling services to provide service members and their spouses with personalized, self-directed behavioral health resources, tools, and support, all from the secure, anonymous convenience of a smartphone. Member usage of NeuroFlow will also produce de-identified, population-level data to highlight behavioral health trends at each installation without compromising an individual service member’s privacy.
“Our Magellan Federal team is deeply committed to helping address the health and wellbeing of the military families we serve,” said Anna Sever, interim senior vice president, Magellan Federal. “Through our work with NeuroFlow, we are offering a digital solution with a focus on prevention and early identification of issues taking a unique, evidence-based approach.”
“We have the opportunity to proactively recognize and respond to the emotional highs and lows of the American military family,” said Chris Molaro, Chief Executive Officer of NeuroFlow and former Army Captain. “We want to pave an easier pathway for seeking support, if necessary, and this collaboration focuses on providing service members and their spouses with a secure, private resource to help close the gap between mental and physical health.”
