Carepath’s Mental Health program was designed to promote prevention and early intervention for mental health issues, including acute mental illness and chronic mental health conditions. We provide timely access to confidential support for those who need it, as well as return-to-work planning for members on sick leave or short-/long-term disability.
We support members with a variety of mental heath-related issues like: Anxiety, depression, stress, grief, couples’ therapy, PTSD, addiction, parent-child issues.
Our Mental Health program is committed to addressing gaps in access to community-based mental health services. This means all members will have:
Our Mental Health program provides counselling for individuals as well as couples and families.
It can help members suffering from mild to severe mental health disorders, as well as those struggling mentally or emotionally due to another health condition or life event (for example: coming to terms with a cancer diagnosis).
Our teams of highly trained and skilled psychologists, social workers, and advanced practice nurses know that different types of therapies work better for different people – and for different issues.
That’s why our program provides a range of different evidence-based psychotherapies, which can be tailored to each member’s needs:
We also provide access to psychiatric assessment and family physician consultation for clients meeting certain criteria.
Why add to your members’ benefits with our Mental Health program? In one word: presenteeism.
Similar to absenteeism, presenteeism is the very real workplace problem of having employees who show up at work, but don’t show up to work. They’re physically there, but they’re mentally distracted, and their productivity suffers.
This may be due to a condition or illness, or to the stress of dealing with financial, marital or family burdens at home. Whatever the cause, the success of the business is at stake when employees are not working at optimal capacity.
When presenteeism is reduced by providing mental health support to employees, productivity increases. In fact, a cost-benefit modelling study by Lo Sasso, et al. found that employers see approximately $3 in productivity gains for every $1 invested in depression care.
The Mental Health program can also assist with absenteeism by providing employees the support they need to stay at work or to return to work following a leave.
