Onebright and Attensi Power-Up Employee Mental Health Training with Gaming-Inspired Approach

BOSTON, June 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Onebright, a leading mental healthcare company, has partnered with Attensi, a training and performance platform, to revolutionize employee mental health training. Together, they have created an inclusive and engaging training platform that will empower thousands of employees to improve their mental well-being in the workplace.

Onebright works with businesses across the UK to deliver workplace mental healthcare, including defining and implementing comprehensive mental health strategies and policies, delivering evidence-based therapy, and providing a vast range of training to help businesses better understand mental health and their workforce requirements.

Attensi's training and performance platform, which combines psychology, technology, and game-based learning principles, perfectly complements Onebright's expertise in mental healthcare. The result is an innovative training solution that equips individuals and organizations with the tools they need to address mental health challenges in the workplace.

"We believe that companies can make a positive difference in their culture, output, and productivity by prioritizing mental health," said Clare Price, Director of Clinical Services at Onebright. "Implementing effective mental health training is not only the right thing to do, but it also brings financial benefits."

The impact of poor mental well-being on productivity is significant. In the UK alone, over £28 billion has been lost as a result of poor mental wellbeing in employees. By providing managers and team leaders with the knowledge and skills to support their employees effectively, Onebright and Attensi are facilitating a cultural shift towards mental health awareness and support.

Recognizing the diverse needs of individuals with mental health and neurodiverse conditions, Onebright and Attensi have developed training solutions that are person-centered and true to life. To ensure inclusivity, the organizations consulted individuals with lived experiences of anxiety, depression, ASD, and ADHD. This collaborative approach ensures that no one is excluded from benefiting from the training.

Attensi's VR simulation technology plays a crucial role in creating a safe space for employees to learn and make mistakes without fear. By engaging with simulated characters in a mobile app, employees can practice and refine their responses to individuals in need of mental health support. This unique training method builds confidence and skills, bridging the gap between theory and real-life situations.

"Diversity, inclusion, and accessibility are at the core of our training solutions," emphasized Clare Price. "Our partnership with Attensi challenges myths and ensures that everyone can thrive in the workplace."

Hannah Raymond-Cox, Attensi's Simulation Designer, added, "We wanted to provide a realistic experience of supporting others, empowering employees to become confident and competent in their abilities. Our layered learning approach sets us apart from other solutions."

The collaboration between Onebright and Attensi marks a breakthrough in employee mental health training, offering organizations the opportunity to create exceptional workplace environments. By investing in mental health education and support, companies can improve well-being, productivity, and overall business outcomes.
