Morneau Shepell Ltd. is partnering with the Canadian Football League Players’ Association to make its LifeWorks platform available to the league’s players.

LifeWorks is a total well-being platform that supports users’ mental, physical, social and financial well-being. It will be provided to CFL players as part of the CFLPA Academy, which already offers career transition programs. Players will now have access to enhanced mental-health and wellness services for up to three years after their contract ends.

“Whole-player health and well-being means providing CFL players the tools they need to address their physical, mental and emotional wellness while they’re playing and as they transition from the game,” said CFLPA executive director, Brian Ramsay, in a press release. “The CFLPA is excited to deliver this program to players alongside Morneau Shepell.”

The platform provides confidential wellness assessments and resources, including videos, live chats and wellness support and assistance. It will also be available to players’ spouses and dependants.

“We are pleased to work closely with the CFLPA to ensure the players are supported on and off the field,” said Norah Joyce, chief commercial officer for Canada and executive vice-president at Morneau Shepell. “We’re confident the LifeWorks platform can help tackle the genuine challenges of professional football players by providing a total well-being solution.”
