We believe in keeping things clear and simple. So we’ve put together an A-Z glossary to explain what some common mental health terms mean.
From the following pages, you can link through to lots of online mental health resources such as videos, podcasts, self-help tools, articles and blogs.
We want to open up the conversation in your business.

Mental health support as part of Bupa health insurance
†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.
