Mental Health at Work should
no longer be guesswork.

It’s time to measure what matters.

It’s time for data-driven improvement.

Mental Health at Work tablet interface example

Mental health is a critical issue for organizations and workers alike.

Employers are increasingly aware of the costs, both social and economic, related to poor mental health at work and the benefits of promoting psychological well-being. Organizations are facing more pressure than ever to provide effective resources to support their workers. The increasing focus on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging has accelerated this need. Despite the recent proliferation of mental health offerings, independent data do not exist to provide scientifically supported decision making for workforce mental health programs.
