A mental health benefits manager is trying to draw attention to the needs of U.S. workers who are returning from military service in Afghanistan and Iraq.

CIGNA Behavioral Health, Eden Prairie, Minn., a unit of CIGNA Corp., Philadelphia, says it will offer free telephone access to counselors from 8 a.m. CST to 8 p.m. CST Nov. 6-10, at (866) 440-8387.

Mental health and employee assistance professionals will be available to help newly returning service members and other veterans, CIGNA says.

Helping returning military personnel should be a high priority for human resources and EAP advisors at companies affected by that issue, because studies suggest that 19% of the returning service members may be suffering from service-related mental health problems and other problems, the company says.
