Did you know that as a TEU member, you are eligible to join HealthCarePlus, a not-for-profit organisation, part-owned by the TEU to make the benefits of your union membership go even further?

HealthCarePlus believes mental health and wellbeing require special focus and they are committed to providing practical ways to help those struggling with anxiety, depression, and stress. One in four Kiwis will struggle with a mental health challenge and as a country, we’ve faced a tough two years since COVID-19 reached our shores.

Special Mental Wellbeing Offer

HealthCarePlus are delighted that their insurance partner – UniMed – has extended their three fully-funded mental health and wellbeing sessions with Clearhead through to 31 December 2022 for all HealthCarePlus Members who have a UniMed underwritten policy.

Clearhead is a digital mental wellbeing service that provides 24-7 support with over 250 therapists across the country that can be accessed either online or in person. They provide a vital role in fast-tracking access to professional support for the mental wellbeing of our community.

With ramifications of the pandemic set to continue through 2022, we urge any members who are feeling anxious or stressed, want to sleep better, or just manage their mood, to please take advantage of this offer:

Between 1st April 2022 to 31st December 2022, UniMed will fund up to three sessions to the value of $215 per session for a psychologist and $120 per session for a counsellor. You can choose to have your session online or in person, professionally designed to reduce stress, handle anxieties, manage your moods, sleep better, and live a happier life.

Depending on the availability of your preferred therapist, an online session can significantly reduce wait times and allow you to choose a time in the privacy of your own home. If you have family on your policy, they can access this service too.
