Uprise is a personal trainer for your mood, resilience and emotional intelligence. It offers a range of evidence-based programs and skill-building strategies to help you improve your mental fitness. Uprise is provided as an additional service to UNSW staff, to complement our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) with Benestar.

The Uprise program contains a Library of mental health training modules which you can work through in your own time and according to your interests.

The Library currently contains 32 different modules on topics ranging from Coronavirus Anxiety to Better Sleep, Pain and Fatigue, and Manager Training. You can dip in and out of the modules at times that suit you.

Each module contains a set of lessons, with lessons ranging in length from one to five minutes.

Why does it need my mobile phone number?

One of the features of the Uprise program is that it helps you to keep track of your wellbeing over time, with a short wellbeing quiz that you can do whenever you like to see how you're going. If your score on the Wellbeing check is particularly low, you won't be left without support. One of the Uprise team members will call you within 24 hours to see if you are ok, and whether you need further support.
