Our employee benefits come from Manulife. You can access the information by going to www.manulife.com. A lot of our members don’t realize that when you go in for dental work, massage, vision tests, etc., that you can submit those claims to get reimbursed. Some businesses even do direct billing! So, in short, maximize your benefits!
Mental health is a state of well-being in which a person understands his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community. When the demands placed on someone exceed their resources and coping abilities, their mental health will be negatively affected.
Manulife offers a Resilience® Program which includes Mental Health. It has helpful advice from caring professionals. When you need a little extra help to support you with all of the challenges you face at work, at home and in life. Resilience® is part of your group benefits plan. In most instances, there are no additional out-of-pocket expenses for you or an eligible family member to use this service.
