Pacific Blue Cross gets loud about mental health

We are proud to partner with the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) to get loud for mental health week. We have undertaken strategies to promote mental wellness across our organization. Our Director of BC Life, Lucette Wesley, spoke with Keri Adams on CTV Morning Live Vancouver about her personal journey and our workplace initiatives for Mental Health Week 2015.

Here are some other initiatives we’ve implemented:
  • We provided training to our staff around understanding, recognizing and managing stress
  • We have in place a change manager to ensure we protect our staff’s mental well-being when implementing change
  • Pacific Blue Cross leaders have attended CMHA workshops on workplace mental health
  • We increased the coverage limit on psychology benefits for our employees
  • We host fitness, yoga and meditation classes at work to help alleviate stress and improve all-over wellbeing
  • Our employee-led health and wellness committee organizes annual wellness fairs, which include both physical and mental health information and resources
