However you feel about life after lockdown, we can help

As we ease out of restrictions and start thinking about getting together again, we may all react differently. Some of us may be feeling anxious, while those around us may appear excited.

Whether you feel overjoyed or overwhelmed about life after lockdown, you can turn to us for mental health support − whether you have mental health cover with us or not. And as we all think about going back to the workplace, our useful advice and guidance can help support mental health at work, too.

††Direct Access telephone services are available as long as the symptoms are covered under the policy. If your cover excludes conditions you had before your policy started, we’ll ask you to provide evidence from your GP that your symptoms are not pre-existing for a period of up to two years from policy start date (or up to five years in the case of mental health). We can then refer you to a consultant or therapist through the Direct Access service. Always call us first to check your eligibility.

‡‡To support addictions we fund one addiction treatment programme per membership lifetime. Please call us if you would like to discuss the benefit limits on your policy.
