Non-for-profit benefits carrier, Green Shield Canada, has partnered with BEACON to sponsor Stronger Minds, a digital mental wellness services made free for all Canadians coping with COVID-19 related stress.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, Canadians are being bombarded with daily updates on its advancement. While information sharing is essential to curbing the spread of the disease, it is important to be conscious of the personal impact.
Reports are now showing that an overwhelming consumption of pandemic related news combined with isolation due to restrictive social distancing measures can affect mental wellness. With Canadians feeling increasingly stressed while navigating the new normal, Green Shield Canada has partnered with BEACON to sponsor Stronger Minds, a free digital program designed to support the mental well-being of all Canadians during this uncertain time.
For Joe Blomeley, EVP Individual, Public Sector and Mental Health for Green Shield Canada the decision to support BEACON was an easy one, as it supports the community GSC has set out to assist since its inception.
“During the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve heard from Canadians right across the country – and mental health challenges have been a common theme,” said Blomeley, “It’s in our DNA to step up in moments like this and bring high-quality mental health care options within easier reach. BEACON digital therapy has already improved the mental health of thousands of Canadians, and we are excited about the potential of the Stronger Minds program.”
While many mental wellness companies have come forward to offer free services to date, none provide day to day guidance from live experts. Experts can adjust and adapt to your stress patterns as they regularly update best practises in correlation to the latest news and developments regarding the pandemic.
Containing a hub of experts that specialize in everything from acceptance and mindfulness to better sleep and resistance building, no matter what tribulation COVID-19 has in store, Stronger Minds provides guidance to help.
