Sometimes you want someone to lend a helping hand—whether it’s to discuss a difficult topic, for help navigating your financial needs, or for support with everyday responsibilities. Boston Scientific offers a free Employee Assistance Program (EAP) called Healthy Minds provided by Irish Life Health which is a confidential support service for employees and their immediate family members. Talk with a specialist, get a referral and access online tools and resources to assist you in every aspect of your life. It is a confidential service that is available 24/7/365.

Download the LifeWorks App from the Apple App Store or Google Play store on your mobile device to access live chat, articles, toolkits, podcasts and assessments. To log into the app use ‘ILH-’ followed by your member number as your invitation code e.g. ILH-1234567. If you do not have a smartphone you can access the LifeWorks platform at this link.

You can also call 1850 718 888, make sure you have your Irish Life Health policy number and employer name to hand. An EAP counsellor will evaluate the level of assistance needed and you can speak to professionally trained counsellors who are on hand to listen and give you considered, impartial and practical advice to provide you support when you need it.
