What is Friendship Bench in the Workplace?
Through our ‘Workplace Mental Wellbeing’ programme we train corporate Wellness Champions in evidence-based problem-solving therapy (PST) so you are equipped with the skills and tools to be able to help colleagues facing challenges such as chronic stress, burnout, bullying, relationships struggles and more that can lead to the development of common mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety as well as non-communicable diseases like hypertension and diabetes.
For those who don't want a full training but would like to provide mental health awareness and psychoeducation for employees we provide Corporate Sensitization Workshops. 

 

This initiative contributes towards increased productivity through reduction in workplace injuries, less absenteeism, less presenteeism, prevention of burnout and general increase in workplace harmony. We believe quality mental health care should be accessible and affordable for all.
