Date:4/1/2008

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. and ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 1, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- The Institute for Health and Productivity Management (IHPM) announces the industry's first Behavioral Health Workplace Center for employers with founding sponsor HealthMedia, the global leader in scalable behavior change interventions with demonstrable outcomes.

-- Those with severe insomnia miss work twice as often as good sleepers

-- The annual cost for absenteeism per worker with insomnia is $4800

IHPM's Workplace Center for Behavioral Health will serve as the leading source of credible, usable information for employers on a full range of behavioral health issues, including identifying conditions and their co- morbidities, engaging employees in diagnosis and treatment, and measuring both healthcare and workplace productivity costs and outcomes.
