Benefits of dog assisted therapy introduced to MeDirect employees

MeDirect Malta has always placed an emphasis on providing employees with the support they need to flourish in their careers and live a well-balanced life. This includes providing dedicated mental health services and information on strategies to maintain good mental health.

Recently, the Service Dogs Malta Foundation, together with two trained service dogs, visited the MeDirect head office in Sliema to deliver a presentation to employees on the benefits of dog-assisted therapy. These benefits include the fact that people tend to lose their inhibitions around dogs and this helps them to talk more freely when in a therapeutic setting.

Sara Strijbosch Ali, HR Business Partner and Branding Spcialist at MeDirect Malta, said, “Life can be challenging for anyone so it’s important for us to provide employees with support should they need it. Everyone responds to situations differently and different solutions allow people to find the best way forward for them. The scope of this session was to raise awareness about pet assisted therapy as a tool one can make use of to help sustain good mental health.’

This event was part of the activities undertaken by MeDirect to raise mental health awareness during Mental Health Month.
