The Financial Implications of Mental Health

After conducting extensive research on this topic, have concluded, the Financial Implications of Mental Health can be devastating on the family unit, especially, if the breadwinner or breadwinners are self-employed. As much as Mental Health affects men, women, children, grandparents; Canadians who are fortunate to be employed by a large corporation or the Canadian government have a greater chance of survival post metal health diagnosis, as they can rely on an excellent Employee Benefit plan, with extended care benefits and if these benefits weren’t enough, corporate and government employees have access to both short-term and long-term disability; allowing them the time, space and financial freedom to heal.

Health Alert: Do Not Ignore Your Mental Health, Do Not Think You Can Self-Heal and For Everyone’s Well Being, Listen To Your Doctor, Even If They Place You On Anti-Depressants And Or Anti-Anxiety Medication….DO NOT FIGHT IT, INSTEAD; ACCEPT IT!
