Mental health support

Why we support mental health

One in four people are affected by a mental health condition every year (Mind, 2020).

We understand that anyone can find themselves treading the fine line between feeling well and feeling overwhelmed, like Vitality Ambassador and sporting legend, Jonny Wilkinson.

How Vitality can support your mental health

Our mental health support spans preventative measures and early intervention treatment, to optional comprehensive treatment for more serious conditions.

There are two ways we can help:
  • Core Cover – our standard health insurance cover includes access to preventative measures and early intervention such as CBT and counselling within VitalityHealth's Talking Therapies network.

  • Mental Health Cover – our optional cover includes unlimited in-network Talking Therapies, plus further cover for out-patient, in-patient and day-patient treatment.
If you want mental health advice or support - we can help. Visit our mental health conditions page for self-care advice and to access care.
