An expat’s life can present a unique set of challenges including a greater risk of mental health problems. Often, they suffer from depression, stress, anxiety, and isolation as a result of moving overseas and leaving their support systems behind. Mental health was a growing issue among them across the globe even before the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mynurva believes in a preventative approach to improve overseas employees’ mental health and that is by incorporating solutions such as employee assistance programmes (EAPs). These solutions not only help in tackling mental health concerns that may arise but also encourage wider employee wellness to address mental health issues before they escalate.
Mynurva Technology in tackling mental health care
Technology has transformed the mental healthcare space as digital therapy can be accessed online and in various locations around the globe. Given that mental health resources are lacking in certain countries and overseas relocation can contribute to mental health issues, multinational companies need to take extra responsibility by safeguarding their overseas employees.
With Mynurva’s technology, overseas employees can access therapy from any location around the world. Our UK-qualified therapist team ensures that high-quality support addresses an array of concerns that impact employee health, wellbeing, and productivity within multinational companies.
Corporations with many overseas employees will benefit from this as partnering with Mynurva will help improve the mental wellbeing of your workforce regardless of where they are around the world.
COVID-19 pressures on people away from home
The pandemic has left many expats away from their family and friends for a long period of time. This led to a decline in mental health among them. Mynurva’s global service meets this significant need for accessible mental health care especially for corporations with an international workforce.
Virtual mental health services are especially important to expatriates as they may not be familiar with the services in their country of residence. Studies have also shown that the future of mental health services will be dominated by virtual support. By providing mental healthcare digitally with Mynurva, expats will be able to access therapy regardless of their location and time zone.
