World Mental Health Day 2021: Making mental health care a reality for all
Published by: TELUS Health,
Sunday, October 10th is World Mental Health Day, an opportunity to increase awareness of mental health issues and break down stigma. The World Health Organization’s theme this year is Mental health care for all: let’s make it a reality.
Neil King, president of Integrated Health Solutions at LifeWorks, shared some of his thoughts about how we make mental health care a reality and some suggestions on how organizations can put mental health at the heart of what they do.
The LifeWorks wellbeing platform helps organizations and their people make mental health care a reality every day. Here are just a few ways your employees can use LifeWorks to boost their mental health:
- Complete a Wellbeing Assessment to help identify mental health improvement opportunities and get personalized resources.
- Take part in one of our Wellbeing Challenges to start building sustainable healthy habits.
- Having trouble with sleep, grief or achieving financial wellness? Participate in one of our many CareNow self-guided programs.
- Check out Support & Resources for mental health articles, videos podcasts and more.
Access LifeWorks anytime on your desktop, by mobile app and now on Microsoft Teams
And of course, if you need immediate support for mental health issues, you can contact your EAP. Our helpful and caring counsellors are ready to talk 24/7, 365 days a year.
