Integrating Mental Health into Your Wellness Program

More days of work loss and work impairment are caused by mental illness than any other chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma and arthritis. If employers have the opportunity to significantly increase productivity while reducing costs by investing in their employees, would they turn a blind eye?

Through a staged approach, and leveraging the latest in digital resources, it continues to evolve its mental health services to meet changing technology and workers’ needs.

Make. Work. Better.
