Health and safety programs need to address the whole person. The mental and emotional health of employees is critical to their wellness and engagement! That’s why at Wellpoint we have specific supports for our return to work programs and we offer targeted training for the workplace.
Your mental health claims are rising.
We are here to help.
Introducing Wellpoint Connect: Therapy for your employees.
Wellpoint Connect provides secure, private video therapy to your employees and is conveniently available from any location online at no additional cost to you. This tool removes the time commitment and often perceived stigma of physically attending an appointment and makes it easier for your employee to get the help they need, when they need it.
Our seasoned mental health professionals are able to work directly with the employee to address their needs, help them stay on the job, and provide strategies necessary to remain focused and engaged at work.
We made the user interface as intuitive and simple; the employee simply clicks on the link below, logs in, selects their therapist, schedules an appointment, and the insurance receipts are issued at the end of the session.
Wellpoint Connect was developed by Wellpoint Health, a Canadian leader in Occupational Health and Safety focused on keeping employees healthy, happy, and safe at work – because we all need to connect sometimes.
