Get to know Wysa – an emotional well-being app with a difference

Taking care of yourself and your staff — especially in these unprecedented times — has never been more important. At Aetna, we have long believed that emotional well-being is just as critical as physical health. That’s why we’ve recently given our members access to a number of globally-enabled well-being tools, including Wysa, an award-winning app offering immediate and continuous confidential support for emotional and mental well-being and a path to better health. Wysa complements our existing resources, such as vHealth and EAP, by giving members instant access to guided well-being support. But what really makes it stand out is the app’s AI-driven chat function which allows members to ‘chat’ about their emotional well-being via text. It can help people self-manage feelings of anxiety, stress and isolation at their own pace, 24/7, and direct them toward self-help content and exercise packs to develop tailored plans, addressing a member’s challenges.  

Each member benefits from one free coaching session with a qualified human coach, and has access to special Aetna International rates for further sessions, which are available to purchase via the app.

Additionally, the Wysa app will direct members to existing Aetna International services they can access as part of their plan, such as telephone or face-to-face counselling, online consultations with a vHealth doctor, and other self-help and professional support resources.

Wysa provides emotional well-being support to help alleviate some of the pressures people are experiencing in this most challenging time.
