Why is life insurance good for our mental health?

Mental health is a bit like Wi-Fi: you only notice it when it's not working properly. And just like a good Wi-Fi signal, good mental health is essential for navigating life with peace of mind. It's the insurance that keeps us going, even when the going gets tough.

Stress at work, family problems, financial crises, health problems, technological developments... are all factors that can weigh heavily on our minds. According to the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), 6% of the Swiss population received treatment for mental disorders in 2017.

This is where pure risk life insurance can be very useful. With SafeSide, you can choose the plan that best suits your needs from the comfort of your own home, giving you peace of mind for the future. Knowing that your loved ones will be financially protected whatever happens is reassuring, isn't it?

Taking care of your mental health now...
Psychological or mental health is defined as "... a state of mental well-being that enables us to cope with life's stressors, realise our potential, learn and work well, and contribute to community life. It is an integral part of health and well-being, which underpins our individual and collective ability to make decisions, build relationships and shape the world in which we live. Mental health is a fundamental right of every human being. It is also an essential aspect of personal, community and socio-economic development.

Mental health disorders, such as depression, are real public health issues, affecting one in two people at least once in their lives. All age groups are at risk, from the very young to the elderly. Feeling well in one's head is therefore a sine qua non for everyone's well-being, and each period of mental fragility encourages the onset and/or development of physical illnesses. This has a cost, not least financial: mental illness and its consequences account for more than 10% of our healthcare costs.

The Confederation is working both to promote mental health and to improve the way it is treated. You can find more information and resources on this subject here.

... and the future!

We understand how important it is for our customers to deal calmly with the changes that occur in their lives, both for themselves and for their loved ones. That's why we offer a simple, no-frills pure-risk life insurance application service. The idea is to avoid the private interests of insurance brokers, and focus solely on what is essential for the customer: life insurance that covers any loss of income for a household, due to death or disability. There are several advantages to this:

1. Guaranteeing your family financial stability: pure risk life insurance offers your family financial security in the event of death or partial or total incapacity to work. This means that your loved ones will be able to maintain their standard of living and pursue their projects without the additional financial burden. This peace of mind can allow you to concentrate on other aspects of your life and your mental health.

2. Think about your priorities and plan for the future: The process of taking out life insurance can make you think about your priorities and plan for the future. This can reduce the stress associated with the uncertainty of the future and allow you to consider new personal prospects, such as changing careers or taking up physical activity.

3. Insurance for everyone, especially young people We believe that everyone deserves financial protection, whatever their age. That's why our pure risk life insurance is available to everyone, including young people. By starting to plan early, you can ensure that you are prepared for the future, whatever the circumstances.
