How Employees Improved Their Mental Health with a New Digital CBT Program

By: Starling Minds

Updated | Oct 31, 2019

Established in 1917, an organization representing 41,000 public employees in British Columbia needed an evidence-based solution that assisted members with their mental health and wellness.

A large part of their role is to support employees on short and long-term disability. This comes in the form of financial support, practical support, and emotional support.

The Challenge

The organization was beginning to feel the effects of mental illness.

  • 1 in 5 people will struggle with their mental health before they reach age 40
  • Nearly 50% of our members on disability are unable to work every year due to a mental health diagnosis
The Solution

To address this, the organization sought out innovative digital solutions that:

  • Educated their people on mental health and strengthen their mental resilience using evidence-based practices
  • Help their members become more resilient to the growing stressors in the profession
  • Help reduce the costs associated with absenteeism, presenteeism and turnover
The Results
  • 86% of teachers improve mental health with a new online CBT program
  • 25% improvement in depression and anxiety scores
  • 51% increase in teachers’ confidence to do their job

Discover why Starling Minds was the selected solution to help over 41,000 members build their mental resilience, anytime and anywhere.
