Mind your health

Through our work facilitating income protection and severance accounts, the Protect team often
come in to contact with members when they’re in distress.

Free confidential counselling available to Protect members

There’s no denying that it’s stressful having to deal with employment changes. Likewise, it’s hugely stressful being sick or injured and wondering how you’re going to continue to pay your bills while you’re off work.

Members are reminded that our support services also extend to caring for your mental health through our free counselling service.

The signs of mental strain or illness may not be immediately obvious and you should take
heed of any of the following:

  • Headaches
  • Chronic pain
  • Frequent sickness
  • Decreased energy and insomnia
  • Changes in libido
  • Digestive issues
  • Appetite changes
  • Depression
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Sweating

Protect Counselling is administered externally by Hunterlink, it’s free and available for use by any member and their immediate families. We encourage you to make use of this independent, confidential support service - there for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
