In a report recently published by The Mental Health Foundation, it was found that roughly half a million people in the UK are suffering from work-related stress.
In another review on mental health and employers, researchers found that for every £1 business invest in mental health training programmes they can see a return of up to £10.
The Global Benefits Attitudes study of 22,347 employees across 12 countries, including the UK and USA, clearly showed the destructive link between high levels of stress and reduced productivity.
“Work-related stress anxiety or depression accounts for over half of all working days lost due to ill health in Great Britain.”

Many workplaces try to provide mental health support to their employees. But not everyone can make the webinars or the workshops, which means there are always some people who miss out on that support. Not only that, but these workshops don’t provide the tailored, one on one support many employees need.
There are a lot of different apps out there designed to help with mental health and stress in the workplace. There are a lot of different apps out there to support your mental health and wellbeing. Apps on mindfulness, apps on coaching, and apps on relaxation. There are so many choices that it’s almost overwhelming. This makes it difficult for employees to know what support there is, and how to access it – and for employers to decide the best way they should be looking after their employee’s mental health. Not only that, but most of these apps only focus on one issue at a time, and don’t have the expertise of pulling a variety of different therapy plans together – leaving you trying to cobble together a range of solutions to support your employees.
But what if you didn’t have to?
Melp is the app that brings all of those apps together, creating a one stop shop for all of your mental health support, while still avoiding the ‘one size fits all’ mentality. Instead of having 15 different apps to support your employees mental wellbeing, you have one – and each employee can use it in a way that best suits them.
Once your business has signed up to the app, your employees will be able to download it. They can then use it in a couple of different ways.
If they know what problem they are trying to solve (for example, anxiety), then they can simply search for it, and Melp will show them a range of the therapies that can help them address that issue. They can then choose which they would like to try out and see which works best for them.
During the guided techniques a therapist will take them through using a tool, tip or technique that they use to help their own patients. For example, your employees might want to try meditation for anxiety, so they would choose a meditation video of a length that fits their schedule, and a therapist will talk them through a guided meditation session.
Similarly, if they were struggling with depression, or struggling for motivation, they could use the tools in the same way.
When the user has chosen their therapy, they will have access to videos, audio files and images that explain a tool or technique, or take them through a guided session in the way an in-person therapist would. Employees can dip in and out of the sessions any time and pick up right where they left off.
As a corporate customer, your employees will also enjoy a 15% discount on all therapies at our virtual and in-person clinics, should they choose to take their therapies further.
