AECOM cares about your mental health and wants you and your loved ones to thrive emotionally. For Canada Mental Health Week, May 2 – 8, we’re highlighting resources to help you and your family members manage mental issues, achieve emotional well-being and be your best self.
We also encourage you to check in with your loved ones and your colleagues to share how you’re feeling, as well as offer and receive support from one another.
AECOM resources to support your mental health
Free and Confidential Counseling
Virtual Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Sun Life is offering access to mental health support, free of charge, to anyone in need. In partnership with Dialogue, anyone in Canada now has access to online cognitive behavioural therapy (iCBT) for a limited time. The virtual service offers a set of interactive toolkits to help individuals overcome negative feelings, like stress and anxiety. Starting with a short quiz, users can access helpful information and resources, like meditation exercises, practical tips, and more. iCBT is available 24/7 and can be done anywhere that internet access is available.
You and your spouse/domestic partner can find a wide array of online mental health resources through our Canada Well-Being program. Participate in this month’s Team Scavenger Hunt Step Challenge — exercise is a huge mood-booster!
