Awareness campaigns make the point again and again: Mental illness in the workplace must be taken seriously, and early access to medical treatment is essential. This session profiles an early intervention and treatment initiative launched in 2017. The employer, the benefits arm for 100,000 public sector employees, provided rapid access to top psychiatrists for employees off work with a mental illness. Psychiatrists worked with family physicians to deliver proactive treatment that led to recovery, return to work and an associated impact on absence and disability.
This session will provide a glimpse of what the future holds for workplace mental health treatment as informed employers demand stronger medical solutions for their employees. You will hear from senior leadership of each of the project partners who will outline the impact the project had on employees as well as outcomes and trends to date.
