Vitality’s positively different approach

Vitality take a holistic approach to promoting better mental wellbeing which focuses on giving your clients tools and incentives to help the prevention of every day mental health issues.
How are we different?

We offer a unique end-to-end mental wellbeing proposition, from prevention to early intervention and treatment.

  1. Prevention: The Vitality Programme’s preventative and behavioural approach to health promotes regular engagement in healthy lifestyle activities, linked to better mental wellbeing.
  2. Early Intervention: When a member experiences a mental health issue, we give them fast access to professional treatment and support
  3. Comprehensive Treatment: When a member selects the Mental Health Cover option, they receive comprehensive cover for out-patient, in-patient and day-patient treatment where required (limits apply).
There are two ways we can help your clients:
  1. Mental Health Support included in our Core Cover
  2. Mental Health Cover as an additional Cover Option.
