LAST Chance! Apply for Wondr

Mississippi's State and School Employees' Health Insurance Plan is offering you an opportunity to lose weight and feel your best -at NO COST to you- with a program called Wondr™. Don't miss out! The application period closes soon.

Wondr is a common-sense, online weight loss program based on Eatology™, the study of when, why, and how we eat. Unlike diets, which rely on your willpower and "eat this, not that" advice, Wondr teaches you simple, repeatable skills to help you improve your health, lose weight, and keep it off in the real world, without giving up the foods you love.

Space is limited! To be considered, you must complete the online application by January 22nd. 

Visit www.wondrhealth.com/mississippi to apply and learn more.

The Wondr program starts January 29th and is offered at NO COST to Plan participants 18 years of age and older, provided Mississippi's State and School Employees' Health Insurance Plan is your primary insurance coverage. This includes employees, covered spouses and covered adult dependents.

MENTAL HEALTH INDEX

📊💙TELUS Mental Health Index : In these monthly reports, the Mental Health Index compares surveyed responses in a given month to benchmark data between 2017-2019. A score of 0 denotes no change relative to the benchmark, whereas a negative (positive) score denotes a decline (improvement) relative to the benchmark. Fluctuations in the Index can predict cost and productivity risks while informing the need for mental health investments by business and government. Subscribe to TH MHI
