Pharmaceutical organisation Viatris has launched a mental wellbeing platform for its 300 employees globally.

Through the platform, which is provided by Unmind, Viatris’ employees along with up to five family members or friends can take steps to proactively manage their mental health and help them to achieve personal goals, such as managing stress, sleeping better or improving happiness. Overall, Viatris is seeking to destigmatise conversations around mental health.

The employer will integrate the platform into its global wellbeing programme Elevate, which launched in 2023 and is based around three core principles: Health, purpose and growth.

Andrew Enrietti, chief people officer at Viatris, said: “The mental wellbeing of our colleagues is extremely important and just one of the many reasons why Viatris introduced Elevate, our wellbeing programme, in 2023 with the principles of health, purpose and growth. Providing access to benefits, resources and wellbeing tools and platforms like Unmind, which encourages colleagues to live life fully, is an essential part of our mission to empower people worldwide to live healthier at every stage of life.”

Sheila Muhl, head of total rewards and talent at Viatris, added, “At Viatris, we have a unique opportunity, because of our mission, to be a company that truly supports our colleagues’ focus on their health and wellbeing. Our partnership with Unmind expands the Elevate programme by offering an important tool that recognizes and proactively supports their mental wellbeing, reduces the impact and stigma surrounding mental health and encourages each one of us to live life fully.”
