How we change lives
The Bonmotus vision of supporting people whilst supporting businesses has come through years with working day-to-day with people who have experienced problems in relation to work and interpersonal relationships in everyday life.
Through this direct contact it became apparent that these issues were exerting a significant heath cost on individuals as well as an economic cost to businesses. When this direct experience and anecdotal evidence was coupled with official UK Government data, the case for acting was compelling.
This is why Bonmotus has committed to designing a range of evidence based psycho-education and early intervention products specifically aimed at addressing the duel problems of employee mental health and resilience and organisation costs and productivity.
