The Benefits of Virtual Healthcare for Organizations
It makes mental healthcare accessible
Virtual healthcare removes access barriers that we face when working in the arts & entertainment industry. These barriers look like: not being able to seek professional help during business hours (both singular and ongoing appointments), no sick days or annual leave days, stigma/emotional barriers, and cost.

Virtual healthcare is both a preventative tool and treatment tool
Removing access barriers means that workers are more likely to access the treatment they need, and for a sufficient amount of time to minimize relapses. This allows for more effective early-intervention and ensures that at-risk workers get the care they need.
Mitigate workplace incident claims and disability claims
Mental health issues in the workplace result in lost productivity, higher turnover, disability claims, and cost Canadian businesses billions of dollars every year. Virtual healthcare support mitigates these issues by making mental healthcare options accessible anytime and anywhere, Canada wide.
