Reduce employees' costly behavioral health risks with these online cognitive training interventions

There are six unhealthy habits at the root of most chronic disease.  These habits are hard to break because they have an emotion-driven mechanism that resists standard behavior modification techniques.

These cognitive training programs eliminate the key emotional and psychological drivers that perpetuate unhealthy habits.

The interventions simulate live one-on-one training, but at a fraction of the cost.  They consist of pre-recorded video training sessions featuring expert instructors, supported by interactive quizzes and multimedia support tools including a companion mobile app.

The results speak for themselves

A large wellness program provider compared the before and after annual Health Risk Assessment scores of 60,000+ participants who took at least one SelfHelpWorks program. These are the results of that study.

Reported lower stress levels after taking the resiliency and stress management program

Increased their daily activity after taking the exercise program (refers to sedentary cohort)

Reported quitting smoking after taking the smoking cessation program

Lowered their BMI by >5% after taking the healthy eating / weight management program (obese cohort averaged 12% BMI reduction)

Reduced their drinking after taking the alcohol management program

No data was shared with SelfHelpWorks regarding potentional impact of participation in other activities
