CHILLIWACK, BC, May 21, 2020 /CNW/ - TeksMed Services Inc, in partnership with Thrive Therapeutic Software Ltd., has launched QuikCare Thrive, a mental wellbeing program that provides users access to an application designed by medical professionals to help build resilience against stress and common mental health conditions and develop reliable coping mechanisms.
"Mental health has become an increasingly prevalent topic over the years, and rightly so," says president of TeksMed, Tony Culhane. "More and more employers are seeing the value in providing mental health care along with traditional benefits. As we face the challenges caused by COVID-19, the necessity for readily available mental health support is clear. And so, we are very pleased to provide an innovative tool for employees to access beneficial mental wellbeing resources, available anytime and anywhere."
The current environment we are facing – including economic uncertainty, social isolation, and the fear of infection – is undeniably increasing the mental burden of many Canadians. QuikCare Thrive is currently being offered to employers for free, in support of employees affected by the pandemic.
"The health and wellbeing of our employees is what any successful business is built upon," says Culhane. "We understand that many Canadians are struggling right now. Even on our best days we could all use a little extra support, and I think we can agree that these are certainly not our best days."
Through mood tracking, guided relaxation techniques, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy based modules and more, the application empowers users to build the mental and emotional resilience that will help them adapt to the everchanging crisis.
Removing barriers between individuals and mental health care is imperative to ensuring everyone can access the help they need. By providing 24/7 access to beneficial resources, users are able to prevent, screen, and self manage mental health concerns at their own discretion, without having to wait for an in-person appointment or face the stigma that still exists around mental illness.
"TeksMed is committed to providing clients with exceptional care," says Culhane. "We offer QuikCare Thrive to our own employees and have seen firsthand the benefits of providing accessible mental health support. We are excited to share the program with others for free, and to make a positive impact on as many lives as possible. Now more than ever, it is important for us to come together and support one another."
