2020 has brought its own challenges to wellbeing. There has been an increase in insurance claims pertaining to depression and anxiety.

In response, the company has organized a virtual speaker series. Each of the 10 sessions is free. Many of the expert speakers are also contributors to content found throughout the Navigate platform. In addition, Navigate has created Project Care, a suite of resources that includes free virtual care packages, additional client resources, and care insights around currently relevant topics.
