Aims and features

Create a work environment that prevents trivial stresses as early as possible.

In recent years, the rising workload due to the diversification of work and the reduction of labor has been putting people to work under greater pressure and more stress.
Being put under stresses continuously will damage people’s mental health and reduce productivity, which will hurt companies in the end. Therefore, it is pressing to teach their staff the knowledge of mental health, and create a system and method to understand and alleviate the stress in the early stage before it transforms into an illness.

Foreign affiliates and multi-national companies must be careful about mental health.

In foreign affiliates and multi-national companies where different cultures are mixed, workers are exposed to stress caused from the differences of various values and customs and they are prone to develop mental troubles such as anxiety and depression. Thus, especially those companies have to be careful about mental health.

In business, it is very important to maintain smooth communication in the workplace while it is very difficult to achieve. Having communication with superiors and colleagues who speak different languages and have different cultural backgrounds requires more efforts in order to bridge the gaps between different values to prevent misunderstanding. Also, foreigners working in Japan might often feel impatient and irritated when they are confused with the Japanese business culture and customs that are different from those of their home countries and so they cannot conduct business operation well. Furthermore, foreign workers are always exposed to language barriers and isolation in the Japanese society, “a different culture”.

Recently, there is a rising demand for mental health care by individuals although mental health care by management used to prevail before. Workers become able to take care of their own mental health by learning how to find stress factors and how to deal with the stresses. And they can maintain mental stability if communication is improved in the workplace and the relevant support system is established in and out of the company.

Specific mental health training

Our training focuses on learning practical methods and actions to take in the workplace, not the medical remedy or general theories. Maintaining mental health by individuals can revitalize workplace. We believe it enhances accuracy and efficiency of work then, leads to better customer satisfaction.
