5 Phase MHAW Model

Mental Health at Working Life Model


Mental Health at Working Life practices aims to identify the psychological factors affecting work efficiency, bring solutions, minimize corporate costs, and increase employee loyalty.

Consulting process consists of 5 main steps:


  • Risk Assessment
  • Risk Management
  • Promoting Work Ability
  • Raising Awareness Culture
  • Improvement and Support





1. Increases Productivity and Participation:

Supporting and improving the mental health of your employees, making them resistant to stress, develops them in workplace thinking, decision making, workflow, and work relations. All of this means increased productivity.

2. Reduces Costs and Risk:

Improving mental health can be a wise financial decision for businesses. Investing in a mentally healthy workplace can result in cost savings by reducing absenteeism (frequent inability to work due to illness), presenteeism, and loss of productivity. It also helps you meet workplace health and safety guidelines.

3. Focuses on Early Intervention / Prevention:

Considering that we spend about 60% of our time at work and can be subject to work-related stress—workload, deadlines, co-workers' behaviors, and personalities, management styles, concerns about job security, and others, it's important to be told healthy ways to deal with stress before the problem occurs. Solving problems after they occur can create new costs for the organization.

4. Reduces the Effect of Mental Problems and Solves Problems:

Carrying out preventive studies on the occurrence of workplace-related mental problems is valuable for employee health and well-being, and workplaces must prevent cost and time losses. In addition, supporting employees with mental health problems is of critical importance for workplaces.

5. Reduces Stigmas and Creates a Positive Workplace Atmosphere:

Mental Health can be a difficult topic to discuss in the workplace. Employees often hesitate to express their mental problems. Providing resources that support awareness can also help create an accessible and positive workplace that fosters interaction and attracts talent.
