Breathe in; breathe out to better mental wellbeing

 

You can now earn 500 Vitality points when you complete six mental wellbeing assessments as part of our brand-new mental wellbeing programme. Plus, stay mindful and positive at home with expert videos on our dedicated Vitality Mental-Wellbeing Channel.

The importance of mental wellbeing

Your mental wellbeing is just as important to us as your physical health. Good mental wellbeing helps you to feel more fulfilled, be more productive at work or with studies, and to make meaningful contributions to society. That's why we’ve launched a new programme to help our members assess and improve their mental wellbeing.

Earn 500 Vitality points for doing mental wellbeing assessments

Vitality members can now earn 500 Vitality points for completing key mental wellbeing assessments at home. These online assessments focus on six areas that influence your overall state of mental wellbeing:

  1. Resilience
  2. Depression
  3. Anxiety
  4. Wellbeing
  5. Drinking
  6. Sleep

You can take these assessments twice a year every six months, and you'll receive 500 Vitality points when you complete all the assessments. This means you could earn 1 000 Vitality points a year.

Your first step in improved mental wellbeing

Doing these assessments is a critical first step in achieving overall mental wellbeing. When you complete your assessments for the first time, it will create a mental wellbeing profile for you. You will also have access to tailored recommendations and interventions based on your risk. These could be videos and apps to help you practise mindfulness and sleep better or counselling over the telephone.

How to get started

Log in to your Vitality profile on the Discovery website. You'll find the mental wellbeing assessments with all your other personalised health checks and assessments under Vitality > Know your health. Click on the mental wellbeing assessments and follow the on-screen instructions to get started.
