The need for mental health support is greater than ever
Traditional EAPs aren’t addressing the complex challenges affecting our mental health. That’s why we have created compassionate, evidence-based mental wellness supports for businesses and organizations seeking to provide the volume and quality of care that our chaotic world requires.
We have merged with – and are now operating as – Amira Health to provide this excellent care for you, your team members and their families.
How is the Sparks Mental Health
We provide you with up to 12 counselling or coaching sessions.
You can use them all yourself or share them with your eligible family members. Access is available via video, chat, text or in-person when safe to do so.
Our definition of “family” matches the realities of today's families.
We know things are changing rapidly, so we include your partners or parents who live with you and children up to 25 years old as eligible family members.
Every counselor on our team works from our resilience-based clinical philosophy.
Created by our Founder, psychologist Dr. Jillian Roberts, our clinical philosophy ensures clients receive consistently excellent and inclusive care.
We take the guesswork out of finding a counsellor.
Finding the right counsellor on your own can be stressful. Our clinical team makes the match for your to ensure you get the best therapist for your specific needs.
We report on the quality of the user experience.
We provide reports that include information on the quantity of program usage as well as feedback on the quality of the experience your team is having.
It’s easy for your team to get the care they need.
It can take a lot of courage for some people to reach out for support. When they do, we make the path to care simple, friendly and empathic.
Mental wellness support for
your company's challenges.
Beyond our Sparks Mental Health Program, we are also here for you with a slate of mental health services. If you aren’t ready to commit to a monthly support program, we offer pay-as-you-go counseling services charged by the session. We can also help you respond to mental health crises in the workplace, show you how to recognize signs and symptoms of mental illness in your team and support your leadership in building their own resilience.
We offer workshops, consultations and custom solutions to meet your company’s specific needs. Integrating mental wellness into your workplace gives you an invaluable advantage, unlocking productivity, boosting employee engagement and empowering your company to excel together.
If you aren’t ready to subscribe to the MHP, our excellent counselors are available for pay-as-you-go therapy services charged by the session. Our Clinical Director thoughtfully matches each client with their counselor based on their clinical needs to help ensure that counselling is effective and resolved in a timely manner whenever possible.
When crisis strikes your team it can be hard to know what to do and how to do it – all while coping with your own emotional response. Our crisis management support includes step-by-step leadership guidance and support, on-site counseling for your team and follow-up sessions as needed.
Resilience is the ability to bounce back when life gets hard. Whether challenges are personal or professional, being resilient helps you get through difficult experiences and come out of them even stronger.
This 2 hour workshop trains your leaders to build their resilience both proactively and reactively. The goal is for them to leave feeling empowered to tackle their own unique mental wellness challenges, cultivate courageous leadership and be able to connect meaningfully with their team moving forward.
We were already in the midst of a mental health crisis prior to COVID. Now, many mental health issues like anxiety, depression and substance use have worsened during quarantine and are continuing now as we navigate ongoing uncertainty. This decline in mental wellness impacts the overall health of your team, and their ability to be productive in your company.
You likely have team members trained to handle physical first aid issues in the workplace. We’re here to help you understand how to handle mental health issues that require similar support. This 3 or 4 hour workshop includes sections on Ending Stigma, Caring for Your Own Mental Wellness, Recognizing the Mental Health Issues and Crisis Prevention & Management.
We offer one hour virtual presentations for your team on key topics such as:
- Staying Productive From Home
- Tackling Biases
- Changing Your Relationship with Anxiety
- Building Your Family’s Resilience
- Financial Wellness
Each session is psychology-based with a down-to-earth perspective. Custom webinars are also available.
Coaching can be a powerful tool for improving your skills in many areas including time management, problem-solving, workplace behavior, confidence-building and more. Coaching is tailored to your employee’s specific needs and can include collaboration with company management as needed.
Clinical support and analysis to determine whether a team member is emotionally and mentally ready to return to their role in your workplace. Especially helpful when navigating a return from short or long term disability periods.
We can provide guidance on how to support your team before, during and after layoffs with the option to have our counsellors available to your team during the layoff process.
Using well established psychological profiling methodologies, we can provide you with an effective tool for evaluating the personal attributes, values and motivations of potential partners, employees or investors.
