Published

Headspace Health has announced a new mental health and wellbeing support solution for the workplace.

The offering brings together Headspace’s mental health and mindfulness tools and Ginger’s on-demand coaching, therapy and psychiatry services.

Headspace Health aims to offer a single destination for high-quality mental health and wellbeing support for employees, as well as an underlying platform that reduces complexity and administrative burden for employers.

Headspace Health CEO, Russell Glass, said:

“The Headspace Health unified experience is all about making it easier to engage with mental health and wellness services and to be kind to your mind, regardless of where you are on your mental health journey.

“Companies trust that Headspace Health can address employees’ mental health needs across the spectrum, but importantly, will lead with prevention to address challenges before they become acute and costly.”

The Headspace Health experience enables employees to to engage in a customised care plan using tools such as Headspace’s self-guided meditation and mindfulness and Ginger’s video-based therapy

Meanwhile, employers will have access to Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services and end-to-end insights to better understand the needs of their employees, among other benefits.

Headspace Health chief product and design officer, Leslie Witt, said:

“Headspace has played a pivotal role in destigmatising mental health for over a decade, making meditation and mindfulness accessible, approachable, effective and affordable.

“With our unified experience, we’re now leveraging Headspace as the front door to a full suite of evidence-based mental health services – from a broad array of self-care tools to fuel wellbeing and healthy habits, to a range of human services, from coaching through psychiatric care, to address more acute needs.

“This approach allows us to support every employee – and their families – throughout their life journey, and to flexibly scale and adapt to their mental health needs as they evolve.”

A study conducted by Headspace Health earlier this year showed that 80 per cent of employees believe it is the employer’s responsibility to help with mental health.
