We are excited to introduce a new online mental health program included with our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Individual Assistance Program (IAP) coverage. Members with EAP or IAP as part of their Manitoba Blue Cross benefits plan can now access internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy (iCBT) at no additional cost through our new partnership with MindBeacon.

From stress and anxiety to relationship troubles, sleep challenges and more, iCBT can help members develop strategies and skills to change the cycle of negative thoughts and behaviours with internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy (iCBT).

“As an ally in the health and wellness of our members, our partnership with MindBeacon is another opportunity to provide meaningful mental health support,” says Jodie Voth, manager of Employee Assistance Services. “The more tools we can offer, from traditional counselling to online, supported self-managed programs, the better we are able to help our members wherever they are in their wellness journey.”  

Program benefits include access to:

  • virtual mental health supports in a private, online space
  • high-quality, evidence-based care
  • a comprehensive library of mental health wellness content
  • unlimited messaging with a matched therapist
