ehub Health and your organisation
ehub Health programs are subscription based. Once subscribed all employees or members of an organisation can easily access the material anywhere at any time.
The programs can help support the mental health and wellbeing of your employees and members, and contribute to reducing stigma in a workplace where mental health problems are managed appropriately.
This in turn reduces costs to the organisation.

What our users are saying:
I gained an enormous amount from moodgym. It has awakened me from downward thoughts and has given me tools to better understand myself and how I can improve myself to make me happy.
The toolkits have been great, and the information in general, mostly for assisting me to understand how I think how I do, and helping to prevent or minimise that way of thinking.
moodgym PLUS user
After using mental health guru, I had a conversation with someone to ask if they are okay, and was able to feel more confident about talking about support available.
mental health guru user
I didn’t want it to end, it felt as though I had an ear that was listening to my issues and directing me through them and how to come out better/stronger…
The program gave our employees a greater understanding of mental health issues… We highly recommend the mental health guru program to other organizations.
Organisation using mental health guru
It is easy to access and use, clearly written and explained. I could do a small part and leave it and then go back to it.
Going through the moodgym exercises made a real difference to the way I thought about things, events and so on. It helped me to identify toxic thoughts and banish them before they could take hold in my head.
