When you’re running a business, you want your employees to flourish in their roles, not suffer in silence if life becomes a struggle. Today, we know that people often have problems with their mental health, so looking after your employee’s minds with health insurance, as well as their bodies, is more important than ever.
With the Mental Health option in place, you’ll show your business commitment to supporting mental health. And you’ll be able to help your staff start feeling like themselves again, whether they need counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), or psychiatric treatment in a private hospital.
Anne is 39 and is part of a team of 12 other recruitment consultants. Recently, Anne has been feeling depressed and has found it increasingly difficult to sleep at night. As a recruitment consultant, her role is highly target-focussed. She’s been lacking energy, feeling exhausted and falling short of her targets at work, which is adding to her stress.
Anne has a very honest and open relationship with her manager and confides in her during their next catch up. Anne’s manager reminds her that she has access to mental health support as part of their business health insurance. This means that she doesn’t need to arrange a GP appointment – she can simply call the Stronger Minds team to start receiving help and support.
On her lunch break, Anne calls the Stronger Minds team and is transferred to a counsellor over the phone who listens attentively and subsequently recommends a treatment plan consisting of telephone counselling. Taking this first step already makes Anne feel brighter for the first time in a long while and getting here has been easier than she expected it to be – thanks to the Mental Health option.
