SSQ Life Insurance Co. Inc. is partnering with Haleo and MindBeacon Software Inc. to offer digital cognitive behavioural therapy to group insurance plan members.

Both companies offer online CBT, with Haleo’s tool focusing on sleep disorders and MindBeacon’s option directed at mild to moderate anxiety and depression symptoms.

The partnerships are part of a broader digital health strategy, according to the insurer, which is aiming to help plan members manage their mental health through prevention and early detection of sleep- and stress-related issues and mood or anxiety disorders.

The partnership will also offer content on stress and sleep habit management to help plan members learn to recognize those issues.
