What is Mental Health Support Service?
Our mental health support service helps employees find balance, improve self esteem and manage stress. Our proactive approach allows your employees to feel empowered and encouraged in finding solutions to concerns before they become bigger issues. Employees who utilize this support are more productive, focused and – ultimately – safer throughout their workday.
  • Employees book their appointments online and can attend sessions with a Mental Health Advocate virtually from anywhere. Employees can connect with the same Mental Health Advocate for follow-up sessions. All sessions are 100% confidential so employees have a safe space for sharing stories, struggles and stresses. One-on-one and group sessions are available, and daytime, evening and weekend virtual sessions are available.
  • When employees have someone to confide in, relate to and validate their feelings, they realize they’re not alone. When employees are supported in this way they:
    – Feel encouraged
    – Learn to talk things out before they become a bigger issue
    – Gain the skills needed to combat similar concerns when they arise in the future
    – Are more focused and productive at work
    – Are less likely to need time off work for their mental health

How does Mental Health Support Service benefit an employer?

With healthier and happier employees, employers enjoy:

  • Lower rates of absenteeism
  • Less employee turnover
  • Increased productivity
  • Being attractive to employees
