The company's EAP continued to provide crisis services and Uprise was used to engage employees who didn't identify as having a 'problem' that needed therapy but who were nonetheless stressed.

The company's wellness team initially offered Uprise to the company’s mental health first aid advocates. These employees are in core operations of the business are also trained to lead the response if someone shows signs of anxiety, depression or substance use or has a panic attack. The advocates spread the program through word of mouth. Finally, Uprise was placed on the internal employee portal and promoted through email and message boards.
Uprise collateral was provided at different stages of the employee experience: as part of onboarding, promotion and to assist with restructuring and retirement. Uprise information was provided as part of training for Mental Health First Aiders. Posters were created for remote sites including QR codes for signup. Digital collateral on physical, mental and financial fitness was created for monthly release by calendar. Uprise delivered in person workshop presentations to key leaders.

I’ve ever come across. The mixture of building skills to support mental resilience with 1-on-1 coaching to apply those in your specific situation is a fantastic support for behaviour change.”
