Supporting mental health and wellbeing at the workplace together with MENTUPP

Dream Broker is humbled to announce that it was chosen as one of the first companies to participate in a pilot programme to improve mental health in the workplace. MENTUPP (Mental Health Promotion and Intervention in Occupational Settings) is a EU-funded research project. The project aims to increase mental health awareness and support those with mental health related issues in businesses. The research project is targeting Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

The MENTUPP pilot programme focuses on firms and enterprises in 9 countries in 3 different sectors (Construction, Health and ICT) and has been conducted by the University College Cork in Ireland with the help of other contributors, many universities and research organisations, one of them being the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, THL. Due to the shift in modern ways of working in today’s society and global climate, the topic concerns most of us in businesses and public organisations.

The collaboration with MENTUPP has been effective in helping Dream Broker employees to open up discussions about their mental wellbeing in the workplace. “MENTUPP has helped to de-stigmatise mental health issues and provided opportunities for leaders to better understand the mental health and wellbeing of their employees,” states CEO Mika Ahokas. This in turn has helped to develop improvements in the workplace altogether, as well as allowed leaders and employees to act decisively to prevent any mental health challenges.

“We have received very positive feedback from the THL/MENTUPP research programme and internally from our employees. The experience has been smooth and easy to adapt from start to finish and we continue to benefit from the MENTUPP programme even after the project has ended. ” Emma Lounaskorpi, Executive & Personal Assistant of CEO and responsible for the occupational healthcare at Dream Broker.

Participants were guided through a step-by-step process which involves questionnaires and online materials that aim to support mental health and wellbeing. “The heart of the project is the MENTUPP Hub that provides educational material for managers, employees and colleagues within organisations about different types of mental health issues and their early signs.” Johanna Cresswell-Smith, Project Coordinator, THL explains.

Participating in this novel research project since 2021 fits well to the company’s core values and ongoing initiatives relating to mental health and healthcare, such as taking care of social responsibility and those in weaker positions. Mika Ahokas, CEO, highly recommends the MENTUPP programme and hopes other Finnish and European companies will follow suit.

Physical and mental health is taken seriously at Dream Broker. The video (see above) highlights testimonials from Dream Broker employees sharing their personal experiences with MENTUPP. Dream Broker would like to thank the MENTUPP Project Research Team for the unique opportunity to participate.

A meaningful and lasting donation on behalf of all customers

Dream Broker wishes to express their gratitude and thanks to their customers, and this holiday season will be making a donation on behalf of all their customers to support the mental health and wellbeing across Europe. The donation will go to the Finnish Association for Mental Health (MIELI), to whom Dream Broker has already made multiple donations, and also, in recognition of the power of musical therapy and art, the Sibelius Academy as a part of the University of Arts.

Instead of sending physical gifts, Dream Broker wished to do something more meaningful and lasting. As a company, Dream Broker is committed in a number of ways to maintaining a positive standard of corporate social responsibility. Dream Broker has already donated to MIELI in the past and wants to continue supporting their work now and in the future.

Operating for over 120 years, MIELI is the oldest non-governmental organisation dedicated to mental health in the world. In addition to operating at an international level, they are also one of the largest mental health organisations in Finland, with 54 local member associations, being run by almost 150 professionals and over 3,000 volunteers. Their goals include promoting mental health and wellbeing, providing crisis support and preventing mental health issues. Their aim is to build a society wherein people can talk about mental health safely, confidently and without stigma.

An internationally recognised centre for developing the musical arts, the Sibelius Academy is the cornerstone of music culture in Finland thanks to its expertise in teaching, research, and artistic activities. The Sibelius Academy is one of the largest music academies in Europe, with the primary mission of renewing and fostering the music culture. The love of music and uncompromising passion for their work is the driving force behind this mission.

A creative community of approximately 1,500 students and 500 teachers, the Sibelius Academy attracts the best from across the continent to study, learn and teach. The international nature of the institution is reflected in everything they do, from research and teaching to concerts and other activities. One of their areas of focus is researching and teaching the relationship between music and the mind.

Dream Broker is a firm believer in supporting their customers, employees, and the community, and see that supporting these two organisations is both a valuable and meaningful endeavour. Mika Ahokas, CEO of Dream Broker, encourages everyone, as individuals and companies, to support the mental wellbeing and health of those around them.
