Mental Health Toolkit - Launching Soon
A functional toolbox for municipalities to use and leverage the tools that are available to Employees and Elected Officials.
Target the tools across the mental health spectrum: Benefit Tools, EFAP Tools, Government Resources, and Other Supports.
The Municipal Wellness Program is currently focused on five priority areas, identified through consultation with external partners, the Municipal Wellness Committee, and informed by research.
The Municipal Wellness Program was established in 2014 and is a partnership between the Association of Municipal Administrators, NS and the Nova Scotia Federation of Municipalities. It is made possible through the Municipal Group Employee Benefits Program with assistance from LifeWorks, Desjardins Insurance, Medavie Blue Cross, and Hub International.
