Mental Health by Medigold Health: A summary of our support services

Proactive mental health services for employers and employees

Medigold Health’s Mental Health Services help organisations create and sustain their investment into their employee’s mental health. We do this by embedding a mental health strategy into your organisational culture and ensuring your senior leaders and people managers have the language, skills, and technology necessary for creating a mentally healthy workplace.

Petra Velzeboer, Head of Mental Health here at Medigold Health offers three stages of Mental Health support for your employees:

All Employees
Awareness training, monitoring, and event hosting applicable to all of your employees.

The greatest sustainable impact comes from leaders leading by example to create mentally healthy workplaces. Our practical skills-based leadership program ensures you have the edge in creating an environment for employees to thrive.
