Home / Life Insurance / TAL takes preventative mental health program to super funds
4 November 2019
TAL is launching an online preventative mental health program for super fund members.
The BEACN program helps people manage their current mental wellbeing by identifying contributing risk factors and then making recommendations to address them. It was developed together with the University of Sydney Brain and Mind Centre.
The program is being piloted with UniSuper, with plans to extend it to other super funds in the future.
It is estimated one in two Australians will be affected with a mental health condition in their lifetime. TAL research shows it is difficult for people to choose relevant evidence-based resources.
The program guides people through a short questionnaire to give them a mental wellbeing score. Then they will be given evidence-based resources to help them self-manage and improve their mental health outcomes.
