Headversity: New App Helps Employees Address Mental Health Risks
Facing the combined stress of the Covid-19 crisis and severe economic downturn, employees are at greater risk for mental health issues. Designed by psychologists, this SaaS (Software as a Service)-based application is designed to help employees not only address potential issues but to lessen the chances of their becoming a crisis.
enables organizations to put the mental health and performance of employees back into their hands, according to the Calgary, AB-based company. Reportedly rooted in neuroscience, psychiatry, and performance psychology, Headversity is designed to deliver vital resilience skill training to help employees think, feel, and be better, rain or shine, according to the company.
Headversity is a workplace mental health and resilience SaaS platform th.at’s built for the modern workforce, the company says. Like a personalized resilience trainer in your pocket, Headversity was created to enable organizations to put the mental health and performance of employees back into their hands.
The company recently announced that it has partnered with Cowan Insurance Group, a Canadian-owned and operated, independent insurance brokerage and consulting operation, to bring the Headversity solution to Cowan’s clients in the world of retirement, group benefits, disability management, and international benefits programs for employee groups.
The company believes that mental health is an “echo pandemic” threatening to be more devastating than the physical implications of Covid-19, says Lianne Clarke, Practice Lead, Vice President, Wellness and Disability Solutions, Cowan Insurance Group. She says that “Mental health accounts for 20-25% of all short-term disability claims and a third of long-term disability claims...As everyone is trying to navigate these difficult times, employers are looking for more mental health support options for their employees. While employee and family assistance programs (EFAP) and online cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) are great resources, building overall resilience and a proactive approach to mental health is an area currently lacking in the benefits space.” Headversity’s workplace mental health and resilience platform is designed to provide employees access to training and tools to help build their resilience, level up their mental game and overcome life’s challenges.
Headversity CEO, Dr. Ryan Todd, says: “Proactive mental health is so important in today’s workplace, yet it’s not yet given the same level of support as areas like telehealth, EAPs (Employee Assistance Programs) or EFAPs (Emergency Food Assistance Programs. As a psychiatrist, I’ve experienced the bottleneck of a broken mental health system, largely because intervention is happening too late, when people are ill, incapacitated, experiencing burnout, and/or are on short/long-term disability. The system is backlogged because intervention didn’t happen earlier, and that’s where Headversity originated. We built our platform to give employees skills and tools they can experience, literally taking mental health into their own hands, to get them ahead of the many adversities they face and build foundational resilience.”
