Mental health claims are the fastest growing claim type1, yet there’s still a lack of understanding on what mental health is, and what it means to be living with a mental illness.

It’s time to change the conversation and our understanding of mental health. We’ve created a video to support this. You can share it during Canadian Mental Health Week. With this year’s theme, My Story, moving beyond stigma will encourage people to share their experiences.

Our new educational video – Uncovering the truth about mental health is under 10 minutes and will help you understand:

  • what mental health is,
  • how mental illness affects people,
  • the impact of mental health on your workforce, and
  • how to support your employees in need.

With a proper understanding of mental health and mental illness, it becomes easier to support those who need it most. This video is a great starting point. It provides valuable insights and can help you take action to support the mental health of your workforce. You can share this flyer directly with your employees. It includes a link to the video.
