MedWorks™ and Life Support Mental Health Inc.
Partner to Prioritize & Deliver Mental Health Support
Toronto, June 14, 2023 – MedWorks™, a Canadian healthcare and wellness company, and Life Support Mental Health Inc. (“Life Support”), a technology company specializing in online mental health tools, are pleased to announce their strategic partnership. This collaboration aims to improve accessibility to mental health support by integrating Life Support's innovative platform, Mental Health Check, into the MedWorks app.
Life Support Mental Health is dedicated to the development of online tools that facilitate the assessment, review, and triage of mental health issues. Their flagship platform, Mental Health Check, is a confidential online assessment tool that offers valuable insights into an individual's mental well-being through evidence-based questions. The platform also provides a pathway to qualified mental health support, ensuring timely intervention when needed.
To support first responder members and support organizations, Life Support’s subsequent Mental Health Check assessment brings together a unique battery of psychological tools to screen for common mental health challenges typically observed in public safety personnel. Recognizing that mental health and work-related stressors are the leading cause of injury in the first responder community, the MHC-FR allows both members and organizations to be proactive in the detection of concerns which will lead to better overall organization and operational outcomes down the road.
“We are excited to partner with MedWorks in the delivery of Mental Health Check (MHC). By integrating MHC into the MedWorks app, we can reach a broader audience and deliver evidence-based support to individuals and first responders who recognize the importance of mental wellness. Together, we can make a significant impact and hopefully change and save lives. Keith Crawford, CEO of Life Support, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership.”
MedWorks™, founded by George Barakat, offers a unique and holistic approach to healthcare and wellness. Their patent-pending app brings together high-quality healthcare and wellness services, making them easily accessible through a smart device. MedWorks™ empowers individuals to take control of their healthcare journey and prioritize preventative wellness.
George Barakat, CEO & Founder of MedWorks, said, "At MedWorks, we are committed to revolutionizing the way people approach healthcare and wellness. Partnering with Life Support aligns perfectly with our mission, as it allows us to integrate a comprehensive mental health assessment tool into our app. This collaboration will enhance the user experience and empower individuals to prioritize their mental well-being."
The integration of Life Support's Mental Health Check into the MedWorks app will provide users with a convenient and user-friendly platform to assess their mental wellness. Individuals will have access to a range of psychological tools to screen for common mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, operational and organizational stress, burnout, trauma, and substance misuse. The comprehensive evidence-based assessment will help individuals gain insights into their mental and emotional health and enable direct referrals to qualified mental health support when necessary.
The MedWorks app is available for download on the Apple IOS & Google Play Stores under MedWorks Inc. with the red heart logo. The partnership between MedWorks and Life Support will further enhance the app's offerings and ensure that mental health support is easily accessible to all users.
