BEARAPY uses the psychology of playfulness to promote employee wellbeing – particularly mental health – to prevent workplace burnout, stress, and depression.
Workplace stress and burnout is a prevalent issue across the world and costs companies billions of dollars every year in absenteeism or loss of productivity. Employee wellbeing is not only fundamental for the individual executives to be effective and caring leaders, but also pivotal to companies’ bottomline and being thriving workplaces.
The Mission of Bearapy is to make the world mentally healthy, and help people get in touch with themselves.
BEARAPY is a term coined by our Founder, which means “Bear Therapy.” This was borne out of her personal experience in learning to play again to get through her burnout and depression. Combined with corporate experience and organizational psychology background, our Founder devised a way to make the playful mindset applicable to workplaces. The goal is to inspire creativity, cope with stress, and manage change to make businesses flourish.
In China, workplace mental health is only starting to be discussed. Based in Beijing, Bearapy is here to help organizations strategize their Well Being programmes, and to educate business managers and employees on mental resilience so that mental health becomes a core part of a company’s culture and agenda.
Playfulness is a means: a tool to illustrate concepts of stress management, to inspire creativity, to bring awareness to the self.
Playfulness is a catalyst: to assimilate corporate culture, to enhance office and workspace designs for increased productivity, to build team cohesion, to elicit the strength of thoughts from the unconscious mind for heightened awareness.
Playfulness is an ends: an attitude to incorporate into daily lives and work for mental and emotional well-being.
