MindQ™

This test requires certified users This test requires certified users

This is a clinically validated mental wellbeing risk assessment tool, identifying individuals who may be at risk of potential mental health conditions and allowing them to be directed to the appropriate support. Our MindQ™ product assesses life dissatisfaction, stress coping, emotional distress, substance abuse and is RAG rated for ease of use.

We recommend this test is undertaken every four months so that any changes can be tracked and identified prior to becoming a serious risk. This is through our MindFull product which you can find here.

If your organisation has an Occupational Health Department the assessment results can be issued to them in order to feedback results to individuals. In these circumstances we can provide the MindQ™ product at a discounted rate. Please enquire if this is preferable.

Our Psychologists say

Early identification of individuals at risk of developing mental health issues allows them to be provided with the support they need to prevent these issues from becoming significant. As well as pointing individuals to the relevant support, data analytics can give an organisation-wide picture of particular areas where work stress is greatest, allowing for changes to working practices or the environment; to promote a healthy workplace.

MindQ™ & Aviation

Recent changes to the EASA regulations require all pilots to have a psychological assessment before they commence line-flying. Our personality questionnaire meets the requirements as defined, in that it identifies the psychological traits and suitability of the flight crew in respect of the work environment; and reduces the likelihood of negative interference with the safe operation of the aircraft.

Symbiotics would also recommend that the mental wellbeing of people, especially within high risk environments, is assessed at periodic intervals using our MindFull assessment. This is because personality is stable over time but mental health varies according to the stresses and pressures being encountered both inside and outside work at any particular time.
