GRiD welcomes HelloSelf in support of better mental health

Press release 7 May 2024.

The industry body for group risk, GRiD, today welcomes its newest member HelloSelf.

A virtual provider of psychological therapy services, HelloSelf offers individuals and partner organisations - including the NHS, insurance companies, and medical professionals - personalised digital therapy.

Through a combination of an expert clinical network and its own therapy platform, HelloSelf is able to deliver long-lasting outcomes for individuals, and the organisations for which they work, in an efficient and sustainable way.

Tim Fuller, private partnerships lead at HelloSelf, commented: “As one of the UK’s largest networks of clinical and counselling psychologists, we are strongly positioned to work with GRID to help shape policy, and advocate for the importance of the right type of mental health support, at the right time, for the growing number of people struggling with their mental health.”

Well-timed and personalised psychological therapy can help support people back into work if they are absent due to mental health needs or challenging physical health conditions. HelloSelf is keen to work with GRiD and its members to explore how the protection industry can support proactive prevention to reduce the likelihood of mental ill health being a cause of absenteeism and reduce the risk of relapse post-support.

Colin Fitzgerald, chair of GRiD said: “As an industry, the closer we work with diverse specialists in field, the better. The fuller our proposition, the better support we’re able to provide within Group Risk. We offer a warm welcome to HelloSelf and look forward to working together.’

About GRiD

Group Risk Development (GRiD) is the industry body for the group risk sector, promoting the value to UK businesses of providing financial protection for their staff, enhancing their well-being and improving employee engagement. Our membership includes insurers, reinsurers, intermediaries and those operating in (or with other interests in) the UK group risk market. Together this forms a collective wealth of experience built over many years. Under the chairmanship of Colin Fitzgerald  (Distribution Director – Group Protection, L&G Retail) GRiD aims to promote group risk through a collective voice to Government, policymakers, stakeholders and employers.

GRiD works with government departments and regulators involved in legislation and regulation affecting group risk benefits, and with other organisations involved in the benefits and financial protection arenas. GRiD also seeks to enhance the industry's standing by encouraging best practice and by participating in industry-wide initiatives such as the professional qualification in group risk managed jointly with the Chartered Insurance Institute.

GRiD’s media activity aims to generate a wider awareness and understanding of group risk products and their benefits for employers and employees.
