Available to GIC-eligible Employees and their Dependents

From the Summer 2012 issue of For Your Benefit pdf format of Summer 2012 FYB

The GIC, along with approximately 30 employers and insurers, is participating in a nationwide study to help working people with depressive symptoms to feel better and function better. This study is being conducted by a highly-regarded research team from the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies within Tufts Medical Center. This is not a drug study.  All GIC-eligible employees and their dependents are eligible for this free study.

The first step of the study is to take a five-minute online mental health check-up. This is completely private and no one from the GIC or State Government will have access to your results. You will receive feedback instantly and find out if you qualify for the study. Information on the website gives you the details you will need to decide whether this study is right for you.

If you are interested in participating, act soon because this is only available through December 2012. Go to: Tufts Work & Health Initiative.  During the months of July and August, you will be entered into a drawing for a $100 cash prize (one per month).
