MercerMarsh Benefits

Mercer Marsh Benefits (MMB) has designed a new digital workplace mental health training course to help employees thrive and perform at their best. By helping us all stay at the healthy end of the mental health continuum, we can build stronger, more resilient workplaces.

For many employees, mental health has come under enormous, prolonged strain, and providing support in this area remains a critical priority for employers. The challenge is how to provide mental health support that effectively reaches, engages and benefits every employee.

We want to smash the stigma around anxiety, depression, stress and other common conditions. Our ambition is to make it easier for employees worldwide to care for their mental wellbeing, and their colleagues’ too.

So, in collaboration with Make A Difference Media and with the brilliant input of familiar faces from athletes to supermodels, we have created a four-part digital learning programme that looks at key aspects of mental wellbeing.

The highly engaging e-learning programme highlights the key symptoms of common mental health conditions and how 

to spot early warning signs in yourself and others. Packed with practical tips, reflective questions and calls to action, this programme helps employees build personal resilience and to learn how to bounce back – or even forwards – from challenges and setbacks.

Asics

In 1949, ASICS founder Kihachiro Onitsuka had the ambition to use sport to improve the physical and mental health of young people in post-war Japan. His guiding principle was to achieve a sound mind in a sound body or Anima Sana In Corpore Sano. He recognised that through movement people could improve their mental wellbeing and he dedicated his life and ASICS to improving the lives of others. Today, the values that defined ASICS 70 years ago, are still very much alive. ASICS believes in the power of sport to improve the mind, because sport is more than the physical activity itself. It frees the mind, and by doing so helps people feel better. Which is why ASICS designs and develops technologically advanced footwear and apparel, for the ultimate feeling of comfort, support and performance.
