You hear from HR that you now have access to a mental health program. How does it work? And how can you use it to support your wellbeing at work and at home?
We’ll answer all your questions about how to use Nivati to support your mental health.
Why use a mental health platform?
Anyone can benefit from using a mental health platform, no matter their stage of life, career path, or challenges.
There are two reasons to use a mental health platform:
- To take care of yourself before things get overwhelming.
- To help you cope with the struggles you are facing right now.
Nivati helps employees add tools to their toolkit—tools that can help you face life’s challenges.
Nivati can help you prevent burnout, create work-life balance, eat healthier, reach your personal and work goals, and so much more.
Bonus: mental health programs like Nivati can also provide counseling services to your family members. Check with your HR leader to see if your company provides this additional benefit.
What about confidentiality?
By law, mental health programs must be confidential and HIPPA-compliant. Nivati is a 100% confidential mental health platform.
This means a couple of things:
- Your employer, manager, coworkers—anyone at your company—will not know when you log into the Nivati platform, book with a practitioner, or use any of our services (unless you tell them personally).
- Meetings with practitioners are only between you and the practitioner. They are never recorded and are kept confidential between you and the practitioner.
- We never sell your data and personal information.
What Nivati offers
Through the Nivati platform, you can access eight types of content to support your mental health:
- Virtual Therapy
- Life Coaching
- Sleep Neuro-Music
- Financial Wellness (coming in early 2022)
You can access these educations resource in three different ways:
- On-demand videos. Learn from our licensed practitioners in 5 to 60-minute videos.
- Live sessions with practitioners. Meet with our licensed therapists, life coaches, yogis, and more for 30 or 6o-minute virtual sessions.
- Downloadable resources. These PDFs are perfect for printing out and using as a reference when things get difficult.
How to use Nivati for self-care
Here are some ways you can use Nivati to better your wellbeing.
1. Make using Nivati a part of your daily routine
When you make taking care of yourself a part of your routine, you help prevent mental health challenges before they arise. Stress often creeps up on us before we realize how much toll it has taken on our minds and bodies.
You can start by watching one video each day. This can serve as a transition into or out of the workday. This will signal to your brain that it is time to destress and get ready for work or wind down after the workday.
One of the keys to building habits is to tell other people about them. Ask a coworker to try implementing this routine simultaneously, or ask your team lead if you all can do meditations together as a team.
You can access all of Nivati’s video content on the Home page in the platform. You can choose to view videos by length (5 minutes, 10 minutes, etc.), or you can select a video from one of our eight topic categories.
2. Set an appointment with a therapist
Therapy is worth a try for everyone. We all deal with stressors, and we all need healthy strategies to cope with them.
For some, therapy isn’t a great option at the moment—and that is okay! We have many videos of our licensed therapists that cover anxiety, coping with stress, boundaries, and much more.
It takes just a couple of minutes to book an appointment with a Nivati therapist under the “Book Now” tab in the platform. You can read our therapists’ bios to see if they would be a good fit for you, then set an appointment right on their calendar.

3. Print out the downloadable resources
Nivati’s downloadable resources allow you to read the expert advice our practitioners have shared in their videos. This is a great option for those that prefer to learn by reading.
These PDFs can also be printed out and serve as a great visual reminder to take care of yourself.
4. Use Nivati with your family
Do a yoga or Zumba video together to bond with your loved ones! Exercising with others supports multiple key areas of our wellbeing: social, physical, and even emotional and mental.
How Nivati supports HR Leaders
Nivati helps HR leaders take care of themselves and their teams in three ways.
1. Super simple implementation
We manage the heavy lifting. There’s no setup required for HR leaders! Just provide your employee list, and we will take care of the rest.
2. HIPPA-compliant insights
HR leaders can gain actionable insights into the state of their team’s wellbeing, such as how many employees are using the platform, which tools they are using the most, and how many appointments are being booked in the Data section of the platform. All data is HIPPA-compliant and anonymous to protect employee confidentiality.
3. Outreach to increase utilization
We help boost platform utilization by reaching out to employees with helpful mental health resources via email and social media.
