HubSpot and Modern Health Partner to Support Mental Wellbeing in the Workplace

WRITTEN BY: Ryan Vingum

The hardships of 2020 exposed many flaws in our social and economic systems, including the ways we address mental health needs. In the workplace, specifically, the task of balancing remote work with child care while also aiming to stay productive has led to a range of mental health problems, reinforcing the importance of supporting an employee’s mental health.

In response, HubSpot partnered in January with Modern Health, a digital health platform that provides a range of resources to help support mental health, such as meditation exercises, courses, and access to coaching and one-on-one therapy sessions. The results are already surpassing expectations. 

HubSpot is reporting that nearly 30% of its more than 4,500 employees are using many of the benefits of the Modern Health platform. Nearly half of employees have engaged with some kind of educational program or sought help from a personal coach or therapist. 

Since the pandemic started, there has been an increase in digital health startups focused on mental health. While researchers express some concern about whether digital tools (mostly apps) can provide the same level of care as a human-based approach, there is general agreement that these platforms can increase patient access to vital resources, highlighting their importance. 

Modern Health prides itself on being a platform that differs from other digital healthcare options by focusing on proactive care options and resources designed to help someone regardless of whether they feel generally healthy or are experiencing symptoms that are affecting their ability to go about their normal routines. Modern Health can customize a care plan to an individual’s needs, whether it’s recommended certain programs or courses, a therapist, or a combination of the two, all within a single app.

"By rolling out Modern Health's platform, we were able to provide employees with accessible mental health support, regardless of location, and help us build a culture that normalizes and encourages mental health and well-being,” said Elissa Barrett, Vice President of Human Resources at HubSpot.
