Expectations around mental health are growing
Skodel works with wellbeing and safety teams to address important mental health matters specifically connected to your organisation. This might be a hidden case of bullying, wide-spread stress from a big change or other factors.
Why we must address mental health inside organisations
Mental health issues are increasing, as are the laws and expectations. As leaders, while we can't be expected to address all mental health challenges, we do need to ensure our organisation isn’t causing or exacerbating issues for our people. Not proactively addressing this is a risk to the individual and the reputation and performance of an organisation.
How it works
Skodel is a short mental health survey that's always available for people to fill in, alerts the right people if something’s wrong and immediately links people to support for all situations. All of this is documented and reported on for leadership and external reviews. Let's look at an example of an individual being bullied inside an organisation and how Skodel helps.
Mental health overview
NZ Pandemic Relief Fund Project
Supported by the nation's pandemic relief fund, Skodel was rolled out to a group of schools (10,000 students) in a lower socio-economic area in New Zealand. With a large Māori and Pasifika population, the app was translated into multiple languages (Māori & Samoan) to support all students from this area. Skodel gave students an outlet to share any concerns they were experiencing and linked them to relevant support, policies and procedures. At the end of the first year, 88% of students said Skodel had a positive impact on their wellbeing and safety.
The Skodel difference
Skodel’s survey software is made for mental health in organisations and backed by leading psychologists and risk specialists. It’s unique because it doesn't just collect data, it provides immediate support to leaders and individuals to resolve issues. People can fill in the survey at any time, not just when they are sent a survey, it alerts people if there is an issue and it keeps a record of what was done to resolve issues. These differences are important for external reviews.

Addressing mental health with confidence
Throughout my career, I've dedicated myself to addressing critical mental health issues. I've formed coalitions against bullying, established suicide prevention programs, and contributed extensively to research into burnout. And one thing I know is that leaders want to create environments where these risks don't exist. And if these risks do exist, they want to know about them and stamp them out. Understandably, they have concerns about how to do this safely. With Skodel, I support the design of effective prevention and response systems to help leaders address these matters with confidence.
