Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is essential at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Concerns over mental health have increased in society, at work and home. Fortunately, Direct Line Global has a helpful Employee Assistance Program (EAP) with numerous resources available to our employees and their families.
Emotional Well-being Resources
Our EAP provides emotional well-being resources that help you identify the thoughts and behavior patterns that affect your emotional well-being. Through the self-paced online programs and optional personalized coaching support, our employees can learn effective ways to manage stress, anxiety, depression, substance use, and sleep issues.
