Unmind Gives 2.5 Million Users Free Wellbeing Platform Access

Startup launches Plus One, giving full access to employee families amid growing ill-health trends — after record company growth

Unmind, the workplace mental health platform that empowers employees to measure and improve their mental wellbeing, announced the launch of Plus One, a new feature allowing all users to give friends and family free access to Unmind.

As COVID-19, the economic crisis, and political unrest take a toll on workers’ mental health, employee wellbeing has become a business priority. Identifying and treating employee mental health concerns is a challenge companies face with little direction. Unmind’s digital platform takes a whole-person, whole-organization approach to mental wellbeing, promoting prevention, education, treatment, and care. By launching Plus One, Unmind is increasing its commitment to supporting “mental health for all” by sharing existing employee access to over 2.5 million loved ones.

“COVID-19 has challenged everyone’s mental health, and the long-term impact of the pandemic depends on our actions today,” said Dr. Nick Taylor, CEO and co-founder of Unmind and clinical psychologist. “The whole-person approach means taking care of people’s psychological, physical, and social needs. Extending our platform to employees’ friends and family allows us to make a significant impact when many people are struggling.”

Plus One provides access to the Unmind platform’s tools, programs, and content, including digital courses, in-the-moment exercises, and assessments that are available anytime, anywhere. The platform covers topics ranging from Sleep, Calmness, and Connection to Fulfilment, Health, and Happiness.

Unmind empowers employees to proactively care for their mental wellbeing. The vision of the business is to reposition the topic of mental health as something everyone has, 24/7, that should be nurtured just like we look after our dental health by brushing our teeth or physical health by exercising.

Since February 2020 — when lockdowns began and workforces started working from home — household names such as Samsung, Standard Chartered, Medallia, and Virgin Media have partnered with Unmind to give employees access to clinically backed tools and resources.
