Warsaw’s Mindgram, which claims to be the “first European science-based platform and mobile app for complete mental wellness,” has raised €1.9 million in an effort to change how companies perceive employee benefits.
“Mindgram aims to be a leading software platform for employee well-being. It launches in Europe, but the vision is of global reach. We believe in Mindgram’s mission – full support for employees and democratisation of mental health. We’re convinced that the experienced Mindgram team will make it a reality,” comments Market One Capital managing partner Marcin Kurek.
Mindgram aims to solve the wellness issues of employees in our current COVID-19 world, often associated with loss of productivity. In lieu of providing traditional employee benefits, Mindgram wants to change the focus to a more mental health and wellbeing approach.
According to a World Health Organisation report, “For every $1 put into scaled up treatment for common mental disorders, there is a return of $4 in improved health and productivity.”
The monthly subscription service offers tailored psychological care in the areas of positive psychology, systemic psychotherapy, neuroscience, lifestyle medicine, or cognitive behavioral therapy. The package also includes the option for employees to choose from a variety of workshops led by therapists, trainers, and coaches including mindfulness, relaxation training, meditation, and therapeutic programmes.
“10 companies who have already decided to implement Mindgram on the Polish market, will experience the real impact on the effective functioning of the company: the increase of commitment and job satisfaction and the reduction of absenteeism and presentism,” ads Mindgram co-founder Małgorzata Ohme.
