Members of the media were gathered last Friday, June 24, to talk about workplace mental health and how Infinit Care is pioneering a tech-based solution that allows companies to support the mental wellbeing of employees.
Workplace Mental Health
Mental health issues are on the rise, especially among the working population and it’s severely affecting overall health and productivity. The World Health Organization found that mental illness is prevalent in the Philippines. In fact, it is the third most common disability in the country. The National Center for Mental Health also recorded a 500% increase in monthly hotline calls due to depression during the pandemic.
Companies have tried to answer this plight by providing mental health support whether in-house or through a 3rd party provider. However, a lot of the options in the market focus on delivering solutions that cater to those who are already in crisis and leave out a significant part of the population. Studies also show that despite increases in stress and burnout, utilization for mental health benefits remain low due to the lack of access to proper mental health solutions and the persistent stigma around talking about mental health struggles.
A Pioneer in Mental Health Tech
Infinit Care partners with businesses and organizations to provide their employees and community with comprehensive mental health support. “Our platform of care solutions are founded on The Mental Health Continuum which takes into account a wide range of mental health states so that every employee can receive customized support, no matter what they’re going through, wherever and however they need it,” explained Infinit Care Marketing Head, Paola Silva.
“Everyone needs different kinds of care at different times. We work with companies who care deeply about the mental wellbeing of their employees and understand that mental health is just as important as physical health. We help companies bring the best out of their people by providing personalized mental health support.” said Infinit Care’s Head of Clinical Care, Shyne Mangulabnan.
