Intellect, Asia’s leading mental health and wellbeing platform, has launched a pilot programme offering free mental health resources and counselling sessions to businesses and individuals impacted by the recent 7.6 magnitude earthquake in Ishikawa Prefecture, East Japan.

The devastating earthquake caused significant physical and psychological distress, leading to extensive damage, power outages, and tragic loss of life, with at least 55 people reported dead and over 35 aftershocks recorded, as per the Wall Street Journal. The emotional impact on these communities is profound and addressing the mental trauma endured by those affected is of paramount importance. According to experts, there’s an urgent need for emotional support post-disaster and such psychological toll can even manifest physically, through symptoms like insomnia and changes in appetite.

To bridge this gap, Intellect is providing companies and their employees within the affected areas free access to their mental health resources and up to 30 clinical counselling sessions. Through the platform, users can tap into targeted resources for managing post-disaster stress and anxiety, such as professional counselling, self-guided emotional regulation exercises, and resilience-building techniques. It also offers personalised therapy sessions conducted by trained professionals experienced in trauma-informed care. This suite of tools helps employees cope with the immediate aftermath and equips them with long-term strategies for emotional wellbeing.

“During this difficult period for Japan, our hearts at Intellect are with the people affected by the recent disasters that have happened. We recognise the integral role mental health plays in the aftermath of such events, and as such we are committed to supporting the emotional wellbeing of the Japanese community. We will be providing free access to Intellect’s suite of local Japanese mental health services to ensure people are supported and are able to remain resilient in navigating this difficult period.” states Theodoric Chew, Co-founder & CEO of Intellect.

For business leader seeking to bolster your team’s resilience, Intellect provides mental wellbeing support for your employees, completely free of charge.
