Did you know that a recent survey found 5.2% of Canadians aged 15 and up had suffered from some form of anxiety and that just half of those struggling were able to get the help they needed?
With Canadians paying $195 million out of pocket every year on psychologists in private practice, the costs involved with accessing services can act as a barrier to those seeking help. However, as a member of Local 793’s Life and Health Benefits Plan, the help you or a loved one requires is only a phone call away.
With coverage provided for psychological assessments and other services such as behavioural therapy and immediate assistance offered through Members Health, the Operating Engineers Benefits Administration Corporation (OEBAC) will be behind you every step of the way on your journey to mental wellbeing.
