Today, IUOE Local 793 marks World Mental Health Day. It affords us an opportunity to focus greater attention on mental health awareness and normalizing the discussion to break down its stigma.

This year’s World Mental Health Day focuses on making mental health care a reality for all and building a future where quality mental health services are accessible worldwide.

Local 793 recognizes the importance of mental health and has been improving its health benefit plan over the years to ensure members and their families continue to receive industry-leading platinum level health service. This includes raising coverage for mental health professionals (psychologists, psychotherapists and social workers) and providing access to healthcare professionals through the Member’s Health program that allows access to a doctor anytime, anywhere, 24/7.

Local 793 understands the importance of mental health and how it affects us all.

Only together can we break the stigma surrounding mental health.
