Iswara’s unique mental wellbeing program has been designed in response to the research conducted in 2022 alongside Central Queensland University which saw a significant reduction in stress and a significant increase in wellbeing of participant’s involved with Iswara’s 10-day activity.
Our strong foundation in clinical practice backed by proven research forms the framework of our Thriving Minds program for employers to better support the mental wellbeing of their employees.
Some clients we have worked with:
The success of a business is driven by the people it employs. From business owners, executives, management to individual employees, we all relate to the challenges of life and the impact it can have on our wellbeing.
We also strive to be more productive, feel like we have a purpose and enjoy the spoils of success. Supporting a culture of employee wellbeing boosts employee productivity and increases business profitability, alongside the positive impact it has on the lives of employees.
The obligations on employers to also support the psychological health of employees means that Thriving Minds can also be used as a support program to help build a mentally fit workforce.
Using Iswara’s proven results, alongside an easy to use digital platform, written articles with accompanying activity challenges, Iswara is able to help create an environment for employees to feel actively supported while working toward a feeling of being mentally fit.
Iswara can also work with organisations that require more tailoring toward their mental wellness program.

THE PROGRAM INCLUDES:
24/7 Personal Portal Access
Employees have access to their own personal portal with over 40 practices segmented into Thrive, Challenge and Revitalise sections. This enables employees to choose how they wish to support their personal growth either via our App, tablet or a good old fashioned PC.
Employers also have the option of receiving analytics around employee engagement, which can also be used to identify areas of interest for further exploration.
It's important that employees have the opportunity to apply the learnings they benefit from in Thriving Minds.
To supplement the self-paced digital tools that are available, employees are also invited to participate in focused multi-day challenges. These challenges are short, yet highly effective, and run three times a year, generally on a topic that is central to the research presented in our quarterly Iswara Connect publication.
Additional activities can also be customised to suit the needs of an employer.
Education through Research
With a strong background in research and building programs to support individuals, it’s important that employers and their employees are kept abreast of changing trends.
Iswara Connect, our quarterly digital publication, focuses on topics driven by research and outcomes to help educate people about how to best manage their mental wellbeing. This content is then put into practice through the activities that we set in our multi-day challenges as well as helping to evolve the content that we deliver inside our programs.
When I was struggling with anxiety my initial reaction was that I shouldn’t be feeling this way and I’m not allowed to feel this way. Iswara, through their amazing programs, helped me reconcile these emotions with the best parts of myself. I’m now a stronger person and continue to learn from Iswara's wisdom.
Eden - Quality Assurance Associate
Mentally I am happier, calmer, patient, which is reflected into the rest of my family. I also understand a little more about who I am, although there is still some more work to do here. I am getting the things I need in place to go back to work.
