Introducing the AIA Vitality wellbeing check-in program

Have you been feeling stressed or overwhelmed lately? If so, you’re not alone. Amid all the change and uncertainty of the past year, it’s only natural that many of us have ended up feeling anxious, isolated, and worn out. 

At AIA Vitality we recognise that checking in on one’s mental wellbeing is just as important as caring for one’s physical health. And that’s why we’ve enlisted the help of mental wellbeing specialists, Mindstar, to offer our members free Wellbeing Check-ins with Mindstar Coaches

Experienced, qualified and caring, Mindstar coaches are now available to help you work through any difficult areas in your life. It’s just like having a good chat on the phone to a friend, with the bonus of access to self-help resources and online support tools.

And the best part? It’s completely free!

To speak with a Mindstar coach, simply complete a quick online form and schedule in a 60-minute call with a Mindstar Wellbeing Coach. Your Mindstar coach will then talk you through the tips and tools available to you, connect you with the right support services for your situation and schedule a 30-minute follow-up call.
