Proactively engaging employees and informing them of mental health resources creates more productive, effective and healthier employees. Many companies already have employee assistance programs (EAPs), but they require employees to take the first step to ask for help.
Affirmed Healthy removes the need for employees to take the first step in asking for help by providing proactive check-ins and direct access to resources. For companies that have not already implemented EAP’s, Affirmed Healthy creates a turn-key employee touchpoint and helps identify the key areas to focus in providing support.
Affirmed Healthy utilizes SMS text messaging to deliver weekly or monthly mental health screenings to employees. Employees answer a series of questions crafted by mental health professionals and at the end of the screening the employee is presented with resources.
As an output, employers receive reports that provide a consolidated view of the overall mental health of employees. This data can then be used to engage with employees, identify areas of workplace improvement, and identify additional resources to make available to employees.
