Case studies

Online therapy for customers & employees

AXA started a first pilot project with ​Selfapy at the end of 2019 for B2B customers, offering online therapy for employees of SMEs. The aim was to prevent and detect absences from work because of psychological problems early. The successful trial phase convinced AXA of the programs’ positive effects on mental health. The current situation with COVID-19 reinforced their decision to set up a new pilot offering together with Selfapy – this time also addressing B2C customers and AXA employees.
