NASCAR SPORT - COMPANY POLICIES FOR MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

In the wake of Mental Health Awareness Week, Group Risk Development (GRiD) has called for employers to make better use of the mental health support included with group risk products.

According to the company’s claims survey for 2017, claims for mental illness issues are almost as prevalent as those for cancer and employers should be encouraged to check their employer-sponsored life assurance, income protection and critical illness policies to take preventative measures.

The organisation has flagged three main warning signs for employers that could prevent a more serious issue.

First, that employees can be affected by their dependants’ mental ill-health; second that support can often be accessed by all employees, not just those who are insured under such policies; and third that all group risk products have the potential to offer mental health support.
