Tap into Safety raises $750,000 to bring its early intervention mental health program to more Australian businesses

Perth-based mental health and safety startup Tap into Safety has completed its first ever “serious” capital raise, landing a $750,000 investment from Dorado Capital as it sets its sights on expansion.

Founded in 2014 by husband and wife duo Susanne and Geoff Bahn, the business-to-business focused startup points its offerings at the big end of town, with two tech-driven platforms looking at hazard perception training and early-stage mental healthintervention for employees.

“We’re focused on large businesses that already have employee mental health assistance programs in place already, or are on the journey of providing mental health assistance to staff,” co-founder Susanne Bahn tells StartupSmart.

She says the startup’s instructive mental health intervention program, ‘All of Me’, provides employers with predictive analytics on their workforce, identifying staff in the early stages of experiencing mental health concerns, and helping eradicate “ad hoc” approaches to mindfulness.

“It lets businesses tailor their programs for the staff who need it the most. Instead of an ad hoc, ‘we’re doing mindfulness this month’ approach, it lets the business decide that a certain group or demographic need the specific mindfulness training, and aim it at those staff rather than just generally,” Bahn says.
