Workplace health specialist RehabWorks has launched a new digital wellbeing platform with a focus on mental health.
The move has been timed to coincide with today’s Time To Talk Day initiative which aims to encourage dialogue on issues surrounding mental health.
RehabWorks which has its headquarters in Bury St Edmunds and offices across the country, works with businesses of all sizes throughout the UK.
It offers programmes and services to help people stay healthy in the workplace and return to their work duties more smoothly and swiftly, wherever possible, following injury or illness.
Its new digital platform is part of its EAP (Employee Assistance Programme) and enables organisations to access the latest advice, best practice information and insights into both physical and emotional wellbeing.
The platform contains a combination of podcasts, videos and clinical articles, pointing to evidence-based advice and preventative recommendations.
Jane Muston, clinical director of mental health for RehabWorks, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be bringing this new platform to our customers, and providing another significant tool in enabling them to be proactive about health and wellbeing in the workplace.

“Manager education is so vital, as it means colleagues can be referred early. This tool plays an important part in that process, and ensures an evolving supply of truly relevant information for employees and those who are responsible for staff.”
She added: “There is, of course, a broad spectrum of how much any individual may be affected, but it is imperative we make it easier for employees to talk about how they are experiencing issues of poor mental health, and that we make it simpler for organisations to not only spot signs, but to signpost their colleagues to the right help.
“On this Time to Talk day we are supporting our customers with open dialogue, and greater awareness. This ensures businesses are likely to see less presenteeism, increased productivity, and more workplace satisfaction overall.”
