Project: Development of Wellbeing Identification and Support Platform – WISP, creating immersive, digital tools to help people dealing with impacts of trauma
Background: Inspire Workplaces are part of the Inspire Group, one of the longest established and largest charitable organisations in Ireland with a vision of “wellbeing for all“, supporting over 800,000 lives, with a client base including the Northern Ireland Civil Service and Health & Social Care Trusts, Bombardier, and Stena-Line
The original objective of our KTP with Ulster University was the development of a new technology platform (Wellbeing Identification and Support Platform – WISP) to offer access to mental health screening and support to employees of companies at risk of secondary traumatic stress as their job involves curating disturbing digital media.
The solution: Development of a web-based platform (WISP) – the Inspire Support Hub – to provide support for a specific cohort (as above). However the scope of the KTP broadened, making the new WISP available to all employees seeking mental health support.
This project won the KTP Award 2020 for Societal Impact – supported by UKRI
