In this second coming of COVID, business outcomes will hinge on how well, both physically and mentally, employees ride out the remainder of this storm. This is why we teamed up with BEACON, Canada’s leading provider of digital therapy, to add another dimension to Blue Collar’s disability program.

To date, BEACON’s service has already helped thousands struggling with depression, anxiety, insomnia and PTSD. It’s the only iCBT service that has reported successful results for these conditions, explaining why the Ontario government selected BEACON to help address the province’s mental health crisis during COVID—driving a 15-fold increase in traffic to BEACON’s services.

In addition to resilience training and coaching, BEACON’s clinical therapy includes:

  • A diagnostic assessment that entails an online component followed by a consult with a registered psychologist
  • Professional therapy tailored to assessment results
  • Return-to-work modules focused on mental health improvement in the context of the claimant’s vocation
  • Regular reporting including a diagnostic assessment

BEACON is a service that extends far beyond resilience training by extensively examining a worker’s psychological history, instilling deeper self-awareness, and exploring root causes.
