HOLLER IT provides mental health and well-being packages to businesses and employers who are seeking to step up their commitment to those who have experienced additional stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The launch of Holler It comes after the World Health Organisation (WHO) warned of an ‘upsurge in the number and severity of mental illness’ in the aftermath of the global lockdown. UK mental health charities are also reporting an unprecedented level of demand for their resources.

Holler it, founder Lily Gupta said:

“The mental health and wellbeing of people have been severely impacted by the pandemic.

“Increased worries surrounding job security, finances, exposure to the deadly disease and isolation have caused overwhelming levels of stress and anxiety. It is getting worse as people are now faced with returning to work, amongst other issues.

“People face mental health challenges every day, but COVID-19 has exacerbated the situation for millions and it’s time to reflect on the difficulties that might come up for some.

“We are calling on businesses to engage and use our services so that together we can start to improve the mental and emotional health of Britain. It is time for businesses to give back to their customers – and support them in a meaningful way. Holler it believes in supporting businesses to support customers.”

Holler it’s unique confidential service provides immediate 24-hour telephone and online provision for people struggling to cope with stress and anxiety. Expert signposting and support on a whole range of issues including debt, finances, relationships, legal and family matters are available as well the impact of COVID-19.

Businesses are being urged to sign up to the Holler it programme to offer their support and care packages to both customers and employees.

Lily added:

“Banks, insurers and big organisations often offer perks to members such as free newspapers or coffee. Holler it’s provision as a benefit is something that will be far more tangible and beneficial to customers. We are hoping to engage with as many businesses as possible so that they can introduce this provision to their customers too.”
