Beyond Blue Monday

On the 20th January, the nation will awake to Blue Monday. It’s officially said to be the gloomiest day of the year because the festivities have ended, it’s cold outside and it feels like an eternity until pay day. All these things can have an adverse effect on peoples’ mental health.

And whether you see it as a genuine positive or just a marketing gimmick, surely any chance to boost your morale is a good thing, right?

But as good as Blue Monday is at raising awareness of mental health, it’s not something that can be tackled in one day. Customers need ongoing support throughout the year. That’s why Legal & General provides its income protection customers through intermediaries with access to Nurse Support Services, provided by RedArc Assured Limited.

Supporting mental health today and beyond

Legal & General Nurse Support Services provides customers with access to experienced, registered nurses that can offer long-term support and guidance for mental health conditions. Using their expertise, they are able to identify the most appropriate course of action, and can quickly arrange face-to-face counselling or therapy sessions.

It’s support that’s on hand all year round, not just one day. After all, any day can be a ‘Blue Monday’ for someone who has mental health problems, that’s why it’s important to give them the right support at the right time. 

Designed around customers

At Legal & General, it’s our goal to design products and services around the needs of our customers. Legal & General Nurse Support Services is another example of us listening and delivering the right service, at the right time.
