Toronto, ON – May 8, 2020 -  In support of Canadian Mental Health Association’s (CMHA) annual Mental Health Week, Lifemark Health Group is proud to play a key role in a variety of programs that support healthcare professionals. Lifemark is the service provider for the Nurses’ Health Program (Ontario), the Ontario Pharmacy Health Program, and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta Physician Health Monitoring Program.  

These programs offer support to healthcare professionals with substance use and/or mental health disorders, with the belief that, with the right support, the healthcare professionals can return to safe practice, which promotes professional accountability and protects the public. The Health Programs also have a strong community resource component, to help ensure continued support and connection once the program has been completed.

“Lifemark supports the important work being done by CMHA to change attitudes and perceptions about mental health,” said Rene Deschamps, Vice President of Lifemark Workplace Health & Wellness. “Lifemark is proud of the work we’re doing in support of healthcare professionals, as these programs are even more meaningful given the unprecedented circumstances these professions find themselves in as part of the COVID-19 crisis.”
