The rise in mental health claims through extended benefits utilization, workplace mental injury claims, as well as conditions impacting Short and Long Term Disability has impacts on all aspects of workplace performance. Employees may not be working at their optimal performance and organizations may see increases in casual absence frequency and mental health claims. Productivity, turnover and declining workplace morale can be further results of the negative outcomes of the rise in mental health conditions.

The annual economic cost of mental illness in Canada is estimated at over $50 billion per year. This includes health care costs, lost productivity, and reductions in health-related quality of life1.

The cost of a workplace disability leave for a mental illness is about double the cost of a leave due to a physical illness2.

Insight Health Solutions is well versed in supporting employers with comprehensive strategies to impact mental wellness and disability. The vision of service as a “Healthier Me…Stronger We” focuses on the individuals in our programs and their impact on the larger community including that of their employer.

Expedited MH Assessment and Treatment

We recognize that access to community providers can delay the start of support for workers when they need it. When an employee is ready for support, organizations have access to clinicians to deliver assessment and ongoing treatment. We offer expedited mental health assessments and treatments to ensure your employees are supported promptly in a time of need. We offer these assessments in-person or virtually over a secure connection.

Employer Awareness and Education Training

To help organizations foster a proactive and informed workplace, we equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to contribute to the well-being of their employees and their organization. We offer employer sessions focused on various topics which provide information and training to support managers and leaders working with employees. Our team can customize sessions for employees, including topics around health and wellness supporting and focused on specific specialties.  Sessions for managers detail higher level strategies and background on areas of training focus. Topics covered include identifying risk factors, supporting positive performance and behaviours in self and others.

Peer Support Programs

Peer Support Teams are important in building internal opportunities for confidential care and building an infrastructure for open dialogue without stigma. We work with our clients to provide professional guidance and recommendations in configuring these teams to work within the framework of the workplace. To ensure your full support through this process, we will continue to provide ongoing oversight and supervision of these teams.

Pre-employment Psychological Assessments

As a part of pre-hire testing, we conduct pre-employment psychological assessments through our expert clinicians. This involves a comprehensive standardized interview along with psychometric testing generating an outcome report to advise on the recommendation to proceed through the hiring procedures.

Post-Critical Incident Support Program

The Post-Critical Incident Support Program provides employees with a standardized and systematic approach to early identification and access to services post critical incidents. This supports employees post incident and reduces time away from work. Our clinicians conduct safety reviews, mental health history reviews, analyze supports and resources, and review outcome measures, symptoms, and any changes to functioning since the critical incident. Our clinicians provide support resources each session and will make recommendations if necessary.

Psychological and Psychiatric Assessments

Our psychologists and psychiatrists can help gain insights into individuals’ mental and emotional well-being. Psychological and psychiatric assessments are important in providing a comprehensive understanding of a person’s strengths, challenges, and overall mental health. In the workforce, this is crucial in helping to tailor support and accommodations to meet employees’ unique needs which helps to foster employee wellbeing across the company.

Functional Return to Work Program

Our interdisciplinary teams conduct return to work assessment and programming. This includes psychologists and occupational therapists who specialize in return-to-work support. The services can integrate an organizations’ return to work team’s processes with Insight Health Solution’s clinicians quantifying, supporting and progressing graduated and transitional work return programs.
