Managing Chronic Stress Claims: A Clear Path to Success

If you are involved in human resources, disability and claims, or health and safety in your organization, then you are likely finding yourself increasingly involved in aspects of managing chronic stress claims. These claims can be complex and managing them can be confusing (and costly!). 


This 3-month coaching program is designed to help you and your team develop and implement a clear and effective process for helping a worker who is struggling with chronic stress and managing chronic stress claims.


This program includes live virtual interactive learning sessions with Denise Ropp (Founder of DR Health Solutions) and Liz Horvath (Founder of Hale Health and Safety Solutions) PLUS valuable resources designed to help you apply what you learn between modules.


By the end of the program you will have a customized mental health disability management program that will help your workers stay at work, if possible, and return to work in a truly early and safe manner in the event that they do require time off for treatment and recovery. 


Benefits include:

  • Having a cohesive team dedicated to ethical and successful management of chronic stress claims

  • An integrated and documented program for managing chronic stress claims

  • Greater ability to help workers who are experiencing chronic stress with early intervention

  • Greater success in helping workers return to work after a necessary stress leave in a manner that minimizes the risk of recurrence

  • Minimizing the overall cost and organizational impact associated with a chronic stress claim


Have confidence in knowing you have a complete and fully customized system for managing chronic stress that will result in increased trust, cooperation and success.

We will work on:

  1. Assessing the risk of chronic stress among workers

  2. Determining the psychological demands of the job

  3. Working with stakeholders to reduce the worker’s level of chronic stress

  4. Helping workers improve resiliency
