working Canadians are unable to work due to mental health challenges. More than half are on disability for mental and/or behavioural disorders.
Disability leave for mental illness costs about double of that due to a physical illness.
WorkAssist™ aims to reduce the time and cost of disability claims by using an early intervention model of disability management – assessing for mental health issues at the earliest point of a claim, sometimes even before the short-term threshold has been reached. This helps employees regain productivity and return to work as quickly as possible.
