One hour every weekday dedicated to Australia & NZ's startup ecosystem. This episode featured Uprise, an Employee Assistance Program focused on providing a more proactive approach to wellbeing in the workplace.
Featuring Uprise CEO
Jay was working as a clinical psychologist in private practice but with the sense he was seeing patients several years too late and that earlier interventions were needed. He completed a PhD in online mental health treatments that became the foundation of Uprise.
Uprise is an employee assistance provider or EAP. The standard model of EAP is reactive where there is a ‘you come to us’ approach. That doesn’t work because people with depression and anxiety don’t reach out for help. So Uprise uses technology to facilitate a ‘we come to you’ approach where we identify employees at risk then have tailored programs for each employee based on their needs whether they are well and healthy or in crisis.
