Problem

The school was taking the wellbeing of children seriously as it was aware of the impact both on school performance and social connectedness. Issues such as anxiety, depression, stress and bullying are recognized as prevalent among the experience of primary school children. The school was keen to identify and respond to these needs before something serious happened and approached Give Me Five.

Solution

The school used Give Me Five to create a basic wellbeing survey campaign that was used by a pool of students. This helped to gain a deeper understanding of each student and their situation. Several children with high/critical concerns were identified through the campaign and received timely and appropriate support through the school's established resources.

Result

Give Me Five has enabled the school to effectively monitor students’ mental health and wellbeing. Once concerns were identified, the school was in a stronger position to provide early targeted intervention, develop a school improvement plan and prevent further issues. The school intends to continue using Give Me Five, backed by strong support from parents.

Problem

Youth leaving out-of-home care are vulnerable due to their situation and can experience issues such as mental and physical concerns, lack of social support and poor educational outcomes.

Solution

Together with Give Me Five, Foyer Central/Uniting Care customized a series of welfare-oriented survey questions that were sent to the young people residing in the community to identify mental health wellbeing challenges and behavioral concerns amongst them.

Result

The campaign has so far been successful. Foyer Central/Uniting Care has found Give Me Five to be extremely useful as a key instigator for counselors to isolate issues troubling individuals before they escalate, resulting in self-harm or violence towards others. It is also helping them monitor ongoing issues amongst the cohort.

Problem

Many companies were facing issues regarding the mental health wellbeing of staff, which was affecting productivity and leading to higher-than-usual workplace compensation claims. To reduce the volume of claims, Give Me Five was used to monitor employee wellbeing and provide assistance where needed for positive outcomes.

Solution

Once the training and onboarding were complete, Work Options was able to create customized welfare survey questions tailored to the needs of each company it works with. By identifying warning signs beforehand, the company has been able to save money and time on future claims.

Result

Give Me Five was able to recognize mental health wellbeing issues in workplaces and helped create a plan for employees. As an EAP, Work Options has found Give Me Five highly effective in saving money and preventing severe outcomes. The company continues to use the app for new and existing customers.
