Psychology Month is held every February to teach Canadians how psychology works to help them live healthy and happy lives, help their communities flourish, help their employers create effective workplaces, and help their governments develop good policies. One thing that surprises people when they come to our practice is how little third-party insurance coverage they have with their employer. It is important to raise attention that need for psychological services is actually far more common than people believe. In fact, recent statistics show 1 in 5 Canadians will have mental health problems at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, due to low coverage, many people cannot afford to get the help they need. Psychology should be a right and not a privilege only for those who can afford it. Help your employer recognize that productivity loss when people go to work with poor health is 7.5 times greater than lost productivity due to absence (which is also strongly affected by mental health problems). Speak to your employer about better coverage in your benefits package, or your union representative at the next round of contract negotiations with your employer.
