What if your employees could look after their mental health in the same way they look after their physical health, with proven behavioural tools that can become part of their everyday routine? What if they could learn the most effective psychological techniques and cognitive behavioural therapy-based interventions to better manage their wellbeing?
With mental health issues affecting one in four people in the UK1, and plenty of stigma still surrounding them, it’s more important than ever that we have a positive attitude to mental wellness. The Thrive app2, available 24/7, is rich with tools, games and content to help you help your people measurably improve their wellbeing and better manage their way through life’s daily struggles.
Stress, anxiety and depression don’t stick to a schedule, that’s why Thrive is available 24/7. Your employees can use the app to manage their mood, better understand their stressors and find out whether they need support with their mental health. They can get help managing their condition if they do. Encourage them to check in with Thrive regularly rather than wait until they are struggling.
The Thrive app uses computerised cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness techniques and distraction-therapy games to create a tool your employees will find easy to use and enjoyable to engage with. Content is updated monthly to keep the app stimulating and relevant.
Thrive works like a day-to-day lifestyle app that also catches rising risks of conditions like stress, anxiety and depression. It’s tailored to the person using it. So, where meditation might work well for one, deep-muscle relaxation or positive-message affirmation may work better for another.
Thrive is NHS-assessed for use by individuals and in the workplace. It’s proven to help spot risk factors for stress, anxiety and depression then suggest ways to change habits and prevent the worst effects taking hold. Thrive can also point your employees to our AXA Health Employee Assistance Programme if included in your package, by clicking 'request a callback'.
Your teams can feel reassured that everything they tell the app about their stresses and concerns will remain confidential. Every quarter you’ll get a report with information about how the app is being used, to guide your wellbeing strategy and show how your organisation is improving its culture, but no personal information.
National Stress Awareness Day is on Wednesday 3rd November, and we've pulled together a few resources to help your business get set.
From expert workshops and assessments to health coaching with physiologists, we’ll make it easy for you to support your employees on their journey to healthy habits. Together, we’ll create a shared wellbeing ambition for your business - be that big or small, short or long-term.
