Insurers ‘must take more action to support mental health’

Some support is too short-term

Insurers are being urged to provide specialist support for people suffering from mental health conditions. Christine Husbands, managing director of nurse adviser service RedArc, said insurers must ensure they have policies in place to support people who suffer from anxiety, chronic depression, stress, PTSD and trauma, psychosis and schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. She warned that people who do not have access to mental health support have to navigate the NHS system, which often results in a longer spell of absence from work. “Many insurers simply don’t offer enough support for people with these conditions but they need to wake up and smell the coffee: polices with thought-through and full mental health support are the ones that will stand out in this market,” said Husbands.
