The launch will benefit all employees of companies who have a workplace protection policy with Canada Life, as well as their immediate family members.
The app is free to use and accessible 24/7. Employees can communicate directly with a qualified wellbeing guide on a one-to-one basis, who are on hand to provide personalised practical tips and advice from guided meditation to advice on improving sleep.
Dan Crook, Protection Sales Director, Canada Life, comments:
“With a growing demand for mental health support in the UK, it’s important that employers have the tools in place to support employees – not just when medical intervention is needed, but throughout employees’ careers to help them maintain their mental wellbeing.
“That’s why we’re excited to introduce myStrength, extending the service to all employees, whether covered by the policy or not, as well as their immediate family members. This means almost three million people and their families will benefit from personalised mental wellbeing support through the app.
“With medical accreditation, and approved by CQC, myStrength offers a comprehensive package of support and is a welcome addition to our existing support services.”
