Assistance in these difficult times: mental health training recovery app


// WA-based tech startup, Tap into Safety has created a mobile friendly platform to combat mental health issues…

In the past month, businesses have been quick to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances caused by COVID-19, moving employees to working from home.

But with this change of working comes possible loneliness and isolation, difficulties connecting with others, problems keeping productivity up, and issues separating work from general home life.

Due to the uncertainty, ambiguity and radical change occurring everyday, it can be hard to keep up with all the relevant news. Or too much of it. As a result, there is growing concern that there will be a significant rise in stress and anxiety issues.

The Australian Government has put out a Health Plan to assist people during these uncertain times. Other organisations, like the Black Dog Institute and Ramsay Health Care have also been publishing advice to workers and organisations.

One of the things organisations can do to reinforce a positive state of mental health and ensure the psychological safety of their employees, is to provide mental health training.


Employees need to learn coping strategies when things get tough, as their stress and anxiety levels rise. They also need to know who to reach out to when they need help.

Traditional mental health training is face-to-face and usually delivered in a classroom or workshop. Given that these options are out for now, an online and mobile-friendly mental health training is the obvious solution.
