What’s Bearapy

Bearapy: Bear Therapy, using playfulness to inspire creativity and manage change.

Mission: Make the world more mentally healthy!

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 good for the executives, but also fundamental to companies’ bottomline. In China, workplace mental health is only starting to be discussed. 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.
