In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, we want to highlight a topic that often gets overlooked but has significant implications for both injured individuals and workers' compensation professionals alike: mental health in work comp claims. We explore best practices for addressing an injured individual's mental health, and how it can positively impact the resolution of their claim.

Dr. Les Kertay, PhD, ABPP, FIAIME, a clinical psychologist with over 45 years of clinical experience and over 20 years of experience in the disability and workers’ compensation space, shares practical strategies for addressing mental health in work comp claims. He discusses the crucial role an injured individual's mental health plays throughout the entire claims process. Workers’ Compensation professionals can make a meaningful difference in the lives of injured individuals by incorporating these strategies into daily practice and enhance the overall efficiency of claims resolution.
