TORONTO, Dec. 6, 2016 /CNW/ - Ingle International has extended their multilingual mental health support phone line – a part of their Student Assistance & Wellness Program – to their international student groups free of charge. The extension was provided by the student team to highlight company philosophies on mental wellness service and support: access, inclusivity, strength, and resilience. The counselling services portion of the Student Assistance & Wellness Program has been added effective immediately.
"Building mental wellness student support into our international student group insurance products as a preventative measure has existed at Ingle International since the beginning. However, in this day and age, prevention is not enough. The Student Assistance & Wellness Program closes the gap between prevention and full support. So students can get back to what they enjoy: learning, excelling, and making the most of their time abroad," says Robin Ingle, Chairman of Ingle International.
The Student Assistance & Wellness Program, an additional service to the Comprehensive+ Plan, supports inbound international student groups in Canada dealing with a variety of problems including, but not limited to: homesickness and adjustment stress, depression and anxiety, sleeping and eating disorders, relationship issues, academic stress, addiction and substance abuse, violence related problems, post-traumatic stress and crisis management. The program functions in two ways. First: it provides access to a peer-reviewed health and wellness library, the Canadian Health Care Guide, and mental health articles designed for international students. Secondly: it facilitates a free phone line for mental health support and wellness. Key features of the phone line include:
- Toll-free 1-877 helpline easily dialed from anywhere in North America
- Qualified and experienced counselling personal with a minimum Masters level education, coupled with 5 years of clinical experience
- Choice of counselling platforms: face to face, telephonic, text, video, or secure e-mail
