DID YOU KNOW?
30% of Maven members identify as men
As the largest virtual clinic for women’s and family health, you probably know about Maven’s value for employees who identify as female.
But did you know that 30% of Maven members identify as men? That’s what our latest utilization data tells us.
This matters because folks who identify as men likely make up about half of your employee population. They’re seeking on-demand and specialized care—and Maven provides that, with personalized support on any path to parenthood.
Maven’s virtual clinic is composed of 1700+ providers, across more than 20 specialties, including many that fill key gaps in care for parents who identify as men:
- Mental health providers
- Career coaches
- Adoption and surrogacy coaches
- Fertility specialists
- Hormone therapists
- Parenting coaches
Here are just a few of the reasons why men turn to Maven for the care they need on any path to parenthood.
1. Stigmas and barriers to mental health care
Six million men in the U.S. are diagnosed with depression, and 3 million men are diagnosed with anxiety each year. But even given the prevalence of these mental health diagnoses, the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reports that men are significantly less likely than women to seek mental health support.
And research shows that adult Americans with both behavioral and medical conditions make up about 20% of the population. Yet, this group accounts for 4 times more healthcare spending than the rest of the population combined.
Maven has a dedicated network of mental health specialists who are trained to work with clients of diverse and varied backgrounds to help address these gaps. All of this is offered via secure telehealth, so that employees can access care as they need it, all while keeping health care costs down for your organization.
2. Supporting fathers on the path to parenthood and beyond
Two key questions we hear often from members are: “Where do I start in understanding my options for becoming a parent?” and “Once my life changes when the baby arrives, how can I get as much support as possible?”
Maven supports men in navigating these and other key gaps on all paths to parenthood, including through access to adoption or surrogacy coaches, reproductive endocrinologists, and more.
New and single fathers often turn to Maven for specialized support through lactation consultants, infant sleep coaches, and pediatric occupational therapists—key specialties associated with high costs and barriers to access.
And while the return to work period can be fraught with stress and financial burdens, stepping up support for all new parents can help eliminate burnout and improve productivity and wellbeing for new fathers, in particular.
3. Supporting working parents
Giving working parents support has become more important now than ever before. With the demands of remote work and child care piling up, parents are turning to employers to find support.
Research shows that 45% of fathers are spending more time taking care of young children since the pandemic began—meaning fathers are looking for resources, tips, and tricks for their families.
Maven provides access to pediatricians and specialists who can educate working parents on anything from parenting advice, early childhood development, or mental or behavioral health. Plus, our Care Advocates help connect members to child care options in their area.
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what one member had to say:
“When my wife gave birth to our second daughter three weeks ago, we were experiencing various small problems. Within just a few hours we were video chatting with Maven providers. They were knowledgeable, helpful, responsive, and incredibly nice people. I’m not using figurative language when I say my wife slept better because of Maven.”
