WATConsult partners with MindPeers to ensure mental well-being of employees

The agency takes steps toward helping its team stay motivated

MUMBAI: Focusing on the mental well-being of employees is the need of the hour. Considering this as its highest priority, WATConsult has partnered with MindPeers a holistic science-based mental health tech platform. The brand is known to extend qualitative, affordable and measurable mental wellness services to organisations. Utilising these services, the agency aims to provide personalised solutions, mindful consultancy, and support to its team.

Along with imposing some unforeseen challenges, the current Covid2019 outbreak has indeed accelerated mental health crisis across the globe. As India witnesses a considerable surge in such cases every month, there seems to be a dire need for organisations to take up the cause at priority. Uncertainty, lack of facts, unawareness and stigma are the few causes that lead to a consistent increase in stress amongst employees. Unfortunately, mental ill-health is speculated to be the ‘next wave’ of the pandemic. Therefore, WATConsult not only aims to initiate this tie-up for a specific time but also, intends to let its employees use these services till the end of this year.

Speaking on the association, WATConsult CEO Heeru Dingra said, “This global pandemic has created a three-fold crisis – health, economic and psychological, leaving people around the world anxious and fearful. Thus, to function at the best of their capacity, it is quite necessary to keep up the spirit, both mentally and physically. Though people need to be assured about their jobs and a healthy living environment, they also essentially require a way to adopt a positive mindset amidst this chaos. This association is a step toward that direction.” founder Kanika Agarwal added, “We believe that workplaces making mental wellness of their employees a priority is the ‘new normal’ and is here to stay forever. MindPeers is a recently launched platform providing qualitative, affordable, and measurable mental wellbeing services including therapies for consumers and organizations. In the last two months, our business has grown by about 146 per cent with a lot of corporates and organisations reaching out to us for our tech-based Employee Assistance Program. Our partnership with WATConsult is quite refreshing and a unique one. As a mental well-being service provider, we certainly need more such organisations like WATConsult who are progressive and are not shying away from accepting the new normal in the literal sense. There is no better way to support your employees than accepting their overall wellness and becoming a part to improve it every day.”

Since the start of the lockdown, the agency has been conducting regular motivational talks in tandem with other informative sessions every week. Every Wednesday is dedicated to mindfulness wherein doctors or experts from the industry share ideas, experiences and conduct workshops around mental well-being. To name a few, they have hosted sessions by Dr Aditi Govitrikar, a well-known wellness expert and counselor, who addressed the employees on keeping a positive perception during the current crisis. Aarti Asrani, a consciousness coach, a bestselling author, psychotherapist and a TED speaker, guided WATizens to lead a healthier and a happier life naturally; and Anaida Parvaneh, an Indian performer, director, producer, playback singer turned chef and healer, conducted a meditation session for all.

This partnership with MindPeers enables the agency to further allow its employees to seek professional help by booking one-on-one sessions with specialists. These sessions will be conducted twice a week and will adhere to the privacy protocols set between the counselor and the employee.
