Confidentiality

Uprise will not share information with any third party without your consent. We only share your details if it’s an emergency (i.e., where we strongly believe that you are going to harm yourself or someone else).

We ask you questions about your mood, ability to work and similar factors. We use this to create a report that we share with your insurer and publish in scientific journals. We don’t include any information that could identify you personally; only group scores for all the participants in this program. (i.e., we say things like: “overall scores for all participants changed from 77 out of 100 down do 42 out of 100 on a measure of depression” but we don’t mention people’s names or the companies they work for)

We are very committed to protecting your privacy as we understand that you might want to discuss things that you don’t want shared with your insurer or anyone else. If you want more information about our privacy policy then please click here.
