People shouldn’t have to battle depression on their own. Nor should they be left alone to fight anxiety. Our clinically led pathway, Stronger Minds, makes sure we're on hand to intervene early if an employee needs support with their mental health.
Stronger Minds is included as part of Advance, our corporate health insurance.
15% of people at work1 have symptoms of an existing mental health condition. As soon as your employee2 begins to experience the first or repeat signs of a mental health issue, they only need to make one call to start receiving help and support; with no GP referral required.

2 Stronger Minds is only available to those aged 18 years and over.
Your employees won’t have to take time out for a GP appointment. Simply call to arrange an assessment. Our counsellor or psychologist will listen attentively, and suggest a treatment plan that’s clinically appropriate.
Mental health conditions are complex, and treatment can vary enormously. Our counsellors and psychologists manage this daily, helping your employees to the most appropriate treatment from self-help and life management to CBT, counselling or referral onto psychiatry.
Treatment is delivered by our approved network of counsellors and psychologists who have been carefully selected to deliver a high standard of quality care.
Treatment will take place in one of our preferred clinics, fitness and wellbeing sites or medical centres around the country at a time that suits your employee. When appropriate and suitable, remote services can be provided by our network through video or telephone.
There will be times when a condition is complex or a treatment plan needs to be revised. In these instances the Stronger Minds team, will be there to support and guide through the process, ensuring that your employee is at the centre of all of the recommendations for further treatment.
Mental health cover and the Stronger Minds pathway are included as standard in our corporate health cover and we’re committed to ensuring fast direct access to treatment. We’re delighted with the positive feedback from those accessing the service and the value this is adding to businesses.
