Manulife Financial’s Workplace Solutions for Mental Health website gets a new look
Workplace Solutions for Mental Health
With approximately 7.5 million Canadians suffering from a mental disorder, mental health is quickly emerging as a dominant issue in our society, and in particular within the workforce.
In the fall of 2008, Manulife launched Workplace Solutions for Mental Health, a public website dedicated to addressing mental health and illness in the workplace. It is a resource centre that provides practical information and innovative tools to employers and employees at no cost. The goal is to work with an employer’s existing disability and absence management program to help proactively manage mental health in the workplace.
Manulife is dedicated and committed to being a leader in the field of mental health and in providing our customers with the tools they need to manage this effectively within their workforce. The Workplace Solutions for Mental Health website recently underwent a number of changes to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our clients.
What has changed?
existing material was reorganized, making the site even easier to navigate;
additional tools and resources were added; and
the site was given a fresh new look and feel. You may access Workplace Solutions for Mental Health at http://www.manulife.ca/wellconnected.
Manulife Financial is proud to acknowledge World Mental Health Day on October 10, 2009. Please visit http://www.wfmh.org for further information.
Life, Disability & Absence Management
With you every step of the way.
