Here are all of the mental health resources available to be offered to employees who are dealing with stress during a pandemic:

  • EAP - Access to an Employee & Family Assistance Program through Shepell - www.workhealthlife.com and login using your employer name or the name 'Beneplan EFAP' -- there, you can call, email, or chat with a mental health professional 24/7 at no cost, and confidential. You can also download the 'My EAP' app (iPhone or Android). 
  • Use your benefits allowance within the plan towards any psychologist, social worker, psychotherapist or other therapy councillor. 
  • Maple telemedicine is offering no cost visits with a GP, NP or ER doctor until March 23/2020. FaceTime a doctor within minutes to hours depending on volume, from your smartphone, tablet or computer. There will be a cost after March 23/2020 which can be reimbursed from the GSC health spending account. The plan member may need to add a credit card within the account but it will not be charged if it's a free consult.
  • LifeWorks Heartbeat Series on mental health in the workplace
  • If you have coverage with Green Shield Canada, use the Beacon customized digital therapy tool within your account
