Virtual Rehab’s evidence-based solutions leverage the advancements in virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and blockchain technologies for psychological rehabilitation of vulnerable populations
Dear Virtual Rehab Partners,
We hope that you are doing well and staying safe along with your families, friends, and loved ones in these dire and unprecedented times of the COVID-19 crisis.
To say that the world is going through a tough and a drastic period is surely an understatement.
Unfortunately, a crisis such as the coronavirus brings along with it not only economic challenges to many organizations and individuals worldwide, but it can also present additional challenges including uncertainty, fear, stress, drastic change, and even trauma, especially to those who were faced with the horrific loss of a loved one — a family member, a friend, a colleague, or even an acquaintance — along with those facing health challenges, and so forth.
Some or all of these unfortunate experiences will ultimately have a huge impact on the Mental Health of a large portion of our population worldwide.
Having said that, the real question is whether your organization is prepared for the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis?
Whether you are a for-profit or a non-profit business, an educational institution, a healthcare facility, a government office, or any other type of business, it is extremely important to realize that this crisis will eventually come to an end and you will be confronted with the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis — sooner or later.
As an organization, you cannot wait until the end of the crisis to start thinking about the course of action that must be taken to alleviate all the serious concerns that your teams, your students, etc will eventually have after all of this is over with.
You must start preparing NOW !
It is needless to say that organizational leaders, human resource professionals, and counselors will need to shine as soon as the crisis is over and their teams are back in office. A powerful vision for the future is a must to regain some of the confidence that may have been lost by the various individuals.
Some of the things that will need to be immediately assessed and addressed are the following:
- Mental Health and Emotional Well-Being of your teams
- Clear guidelines on social distancing — it should be appreciated that some individuals may still not find it easy or even feel comfortable to go back to their normal lives. Some may continue to feel comfortable keeping their distances for quite some time
- Clear and specific guidelines on cleanliness and workplace safety
- Re-evaluation of effective team management — will it be necessary to have all employees in the office from day one or should you adopt more of a hybrid model by allowing individuals the flexibility to come into office at times, while working from home at others
- Additional training on all of the above and to accommodate the new way of working
Let us not forget that according to the World Health Organization, 1 in 4 individuals will be affected by mental or neurological disorder at some point in their lives and around 450 million suffer today — placing mental disorders among leading causes of ill-health and disability.
Therefore, it is important for you as a business or as an institution to not only focus on your bottom line, but also on the mental hygiene of your most important assets — your teams.
Virtual Rehab is well-known for offering products and solutions which further assist in addressing many of these challenges, particularly in the Mental Health sector, leveraging new and advanced technology — virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
We would love to help your organization out to be more prepared for the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis.
