Maple launches online mental healthcare
September 8, 2021
TORONTO – Maple, one of Canada’s leading virtual care providers, has announced an expansion into the delivery of personalized, virtual mental health support. Mind by Maple is a new solution that provides employees with holistic mental healthcare, including self-service and healthcare provider-guided solutions to improve their mental health and well-being.
According to the company, Mind by Maple brings together Canada’s largest network of virtual health professionals, including physicians and mental health therapists, to support patients wherever they are on their journey of mental or physical well-being.
“Mind by Maple offers a full spectrum of mental health support, from booking a visit with a mental health therapist to serving up engaging and relevant content to regular, clinically validated screenings to track patients’ mental health progress over time,” said Dr. Brett Belchetz (pictured), CEO and Co-Founder of Maple.
“Our goal with Mind by Maple is to support Canadians with innovative and comprehensive health tools to improve mental healthcare for some of the most pressing types of concerns.”
The need for mental health support for employees has become a necessity, especially as a result of the ongoing global pandemic. A recent poll conducted on behalf of Maple showed that as many as 60 percent of working Canadians feel that their employer could be doing more to support their mental health, and over half of working Canadians are looking for more mental health support from their employer as they return to the office.
The new Mind by Maple mental health programming and resources will fill this need, giving users the ability to set the pace for all aspects of their journey, with ongoing check-ins, flexible therapy appointments, EAP services and care navigator support.
Earlier this month, Maple announced a partnership with Headspace, an international leader in the mindfulness space for consumers, enterprise, and healthcare. The partnership provides users with access to guided meditations, mindfulness practices, and evidence-based content to improve mental well-being, further supporting a holistic, whole-person approach to proactive and reactive mental healthcare.
