The purpose of Uprise is to bring evidence-based psychological skills to people that want them. Great, effective skills have been around for several decades but research shows that most people don’t know them or don’t use them. Most people watch movies, drink or exercise to improve their mental fitness but these aren’t the top rated skills. Our mission is to make them widely available, easy to learn and easy to practice.
When we developed the Uprise program we reviewed over 100 different psychological skills and ranked them in terms of their evidence. The top four skills were included in our 4 week base program and the next 10 were included as add ons to that program. We’ve included coaching because we had extensive data showing that the completion rates and outcomes were much stronger when people were linked with a coach rather than learning on their own.
We measure absenteeism, presenteeism and turnover using the Harvard Work Performance Questionnaire and Sheehan Disability Scales. These measures provide an accurate assessment of self-reported financial losses. We use these scales at week 0, week 4 and week 12 during Uprise and can chart the cost savings over time. On average we are cost neutral within 6 months for our customers and then generate cost savings of between $7 to $36 per dollar spent over the first year. At the moment we are finalizing a peer-reviewed paper that will show the ROI in more detail. ROI claims are a dime a dozen in the wellbeing industry and that can actually be harmful to customers when their employees might have a mental illness. We’re focusing on publishing all of our data via university partnerships because we believe that the wellbeing industry will become more regulated over the next decade and companies will need to back their claims if they are claiming to have a ‘therapeutic’ service or product.
