Create a better, happier, more productive workplace.
Focusing on mental health is good for business.
Mental health issues hurt employees and businesses. These conditions are linked to increased absenteeism and damage to morale, productivity, and profits, as well as an increase in healthcare costs on the employer end.
Approximately 1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness each year. Mental illness and substance abuse cost U.S. businesses $210 billion a year in absenteeism, reduced productivity, and medical costs. Depression is estimated to count for 400 million lost work days annually.
Not only is improving access to care the right thing for your employees. It’s the right thing for your business.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), for every $1 spent on treatment for common mental disorders, there is a return of $4 in improved health and productivity.
Today's corporate wellness programs tend to focus on helping employees improve their physical health due to incentives such as lowering healthcare premiums, reducing co-pays, and improving employee wellbeing. Mental health and emotional wellness deserve equal attention, especially when considering the costs associated with poor mental and emotional health.
Having a mental-wellbeing program can:
- Increase productivity
- Decrease absenteeism
- Decrease job abandonment
- Decrease turnover
“Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person—not just as an employee—are more productive, more satisfied, and more fulfilled.”
MindBoost is here to help.
MindBoost uses Mindy, an evidence-based artificial intelligence chatbot. Over 8 million people have paid access to MindBoost. Mindy provides emotional support through automated chat conversations with people, through text messaging or HIPAA and GDPR-compliant instant messaging apps. These chat conversations start with "How are you?" and progress as with a coach or psychologist.
MindBoost aims to provide mental health coping skills, foster emotional wellbeing and resilience, provide education, and connect users with resources.
Evidence based approach built on research.
MindBoost has a novel algorithm and extensive emotion ontology which allows the app to deliver integrative support. Unlike current solutions, which focus on sentiment, MindBoost has highly granular emotion ontology, built over nine years of continued propriety research. By personalizing the approach for each user, the app learns what helps each employee on your team best.
The app’s AI chatbot Mindy was scripted by mental health experts to respond to user queries in accordance with different therapy modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Therapy, Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and many more.
