Severn Trent Services, suppliers of water and wastewater services, and Thrive Mental Wellbeing are today announcing a collaborative partnership to support colleague mental wellbeing in the workplace. A Deloitte study – released in March 2022 – found that mental health had a £53-56 million cost to UK employers between 2021-2022ì.
The new partnership has grown from recent employee feedback to build further on a wellbeing hub Severn Trent Services set up during the pandemic to enable colleagues to reach out for support from an internal mental health first-aider.
Thrive Mental Wellbeing provides a range of support services, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, meditation sessions, goal-based activities and sign-posting links, all accessed via an intuitive free confidential and anonymous mobile application.
Thrive’s user-friendly, innovative and specialist screening tools impressed the Severn Trent Services team, particularly smart technology to identify opportunities for support by screening using clinically validated scales, enabling instant access to tools and for experts to reach out to the user should it be necessary.
Laura Harmer, Head of Planning, CI & Reporting at Severn Trent Services, commented on the partnership:
Mehdi Salam, who developed the partnership at Thrive Mental Wellbeing, said:
