Supporting good mental health

Personal issues, stress and health concerns affect us all from time to time. This includes upset and distress caused by sudden and tragic events.

For your employees, there’s no universal response to these challenges. Each one may experience the same event differently. For some, events can have a negative impact on their mental health.

If an employee’s mental health issue remains unresolved, it can become overwhelming and affect their ability to work. It can also lead to short-term absences or a longer-term disability leave.

Let them know – support is there

We encourage you to communicate the valuable resources that your employees can access. These include resources available through the workplace and in the broader community. We’ve included a sample communication that you can customize and share with them.

As this new year begins, it’s a great time to send employees a clear message that mental health support is available – and that their health matters.

Questions?

We’re here to help you support the mental health of your employees. If you have any questions about the mental health resources available to your organization, give your Sun Life Group Benefits representative a call.
