The platform provides end-to-end online support to users from the comfort of their home or preferred location. A unique structured approach is used to engage users. It hopes to help contribute towards a healthier and happier society, by getting significantly more persons in need find help and support.
HMO focus is on Resilience and Work-Life Balance, which focuses on holistic wellness incorporating mental and physical health. We have worked with Healthcare providers and Government to reach out to employees, and School Counsellors to reach out to the student community. Working with our partners we have designed the Resilience Quiz, and evolved our online Video support to include Messaging support in a major way. Power of Messaging over an extended perriod was a major learning from our support groups, in terms of empowerment, effectiveness and ease of use.
Healthy Mind Online has been running peer-led online mental wellness workshops since the beginning of 2018. These pioneering video-enabled workshops leverage on work done in Singapore and globally in the Mental Wellness and Education sectors, and makes innovative use of online methodology to reach out to persons with mental health issues (PMHIs). The workshops have been developed with participation and input from mental health professionals and service users or peers, including a clinician and peer support specialist from the Institute of Mental Health Singapore.
The HMO platform provides end-to-end functionality to run the workshops - from online booking and alerts, online access to pre-read material in varied formats like video/audio/text, video conference facility to run the workshop with instant polling and break-out rooms, community forum for peer discussion after the workshop, and pre and post participant assessments which can be programmed as per requirement.
HMO has been nominated for a National award in Singapore by Institute of Mental Health in Singapore.
