Mental Health & Wellbeing LIFT Program

One in 5 people take time off work due to mental health and 92% of employees feel that mental health is a very important issue, while an alarming 48% of employees feel their workplace is a mentally unsafe place to work. With this growing issue becoming a real challenge for employers, mental health support and recovery costs Australian’s $10.6B in 2018-19 which has been increasing by 1.5% each year since 2014. ref – headsup.org.au & aihw.gov.au

FUNDAMENTALS

 

Mental health issues arise due to acute or long-term physical, emotional or psychological strains. Employers have a duty of care to both provide a workplace where wellbeing can be achieved as well as ensure psychological safety, meaning that employees feel safe enough to be vulnerable in front of each other. There are also proven benefits to productivity, innovation and reduced Workcover claims in these environments.

 

By routinely understanding the energetic and emotional state of staff, individuals and organisational leaders are better equipment to make timely decisions to foster optimum environments and assist those most in need.

HOW DOES EMOTIONAL PULSE WORK

 

  1. People log their emotional state at a frequency set to a workplan (Daily/Weekly)
  2. Software provides confidential insights to individuals and teams about current pulse and emotional patterns
  3. Individuals with trends moving toward risk zones are privately made aware and encouraged to invite support
  4. People at risk can self-correct and frequency of checks-ins increases until they are safe
  5. Privacy of individuals is maintained always until they choose to invite trusted support or may be at risk
  6. Anonymous team trends of emotional pulse are provided to leaders for awareness and culture improvements
  7. Alerts and connections are made real time with real people who’ve been trained and certified to respond
  8. Escalation to professional support is linked within the technology

 

 

In the Australian workforce suicide is the leading cause of death for people up to the age of 44 – aihw.gov.au

The overall cost of mental health is the third greatest cost following cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Promotion, prevention and early intervention reduce the impact on a person in emotional distress and minimise the cost and time to recover back to a state of stability.

 

 

 

SUPPORT AT A CRITICAL TIME IN NEED

When people check-in that may be in a state of emotional distress, Emotional Pulse supports the person in a psychologically designed and approve approach to confidentially and respectfully support the person.

Emotional Pulse invites connection to trusted support, trained responders and professional services.
