As employee stress, anxiety and depression continue to impact engagement, productivity and retention, employers across all sectors are turning to JVAT to enhance individual, team and organisational performance.

ThriveMental FitnessProgram

Mental fitness, like physical fitness, enhances our ability to engage more fully with life to realise our individual and collective potential. To live a purposeful and fulfilling life. To embrace challenge. To thrive.

Our program incorporates the 4 essential and symbiotic components of a mentally fit workforce:

  1. Resilience - A resilient workforce has the ability to WITHSTAND, RECOVER and GROW in the face of stressors and changing demands

  2. Engagement - An engaged workforce is ENTHUSIASTIC about their work and have a POSITIVE ATTITUDE towards company values

  3. Wellbeing - Generating HEALTH, PROSPERITY, PURPOSE and FULFILMENT within the work environment

  4. Leadership - Self-aware and supportive leaders that can develop HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS that embrace challenge



We approach mental fitness with an engineering mindset - the risk-based application of science, mathematical methods, and empirical evidence. This systematic approach achieves meaningful outcomes to address the challenge of workplace stress and its impact on productivity and organisational culture.

We identify and prioritise mental fitness risks that exist within the workplace (the environment) and the workforce (your people) to generate targeted interventions that focus on preventative controls to stress realisation.



Our team bring real-world personal experiences and systematic and pragmatic solutions, honed through exposure to stressful military and business environments - backed by the latest scientific studies.

The programs educate, motivate and empower employees to take control of their own resilience, at work and at home, by breaking the myth of work/life balance. They can be delivered face-to-face or online through a blended learning experience.


JAT has delivered mental fitness programs to organisations of all shapes and sizes from global enterprises to small startups. The program delivers measurable and impactful changes to individual and team capacity in order to cope with the normal and abnormal stresses of business (and life), shifting perspectives on the ‘stress experience’ from a fixed to a growth mindset – from surviving to thriving.

Some of the material we cover in our program includes:

  1. Resilience – mechanisms for modern living

  2. The psychology and physiology of stress – diet, exercise and rest

  3. The power of habit and ritual

  4. Strengths and goal setting

  5. Hacking the brain and nervous system

  6. Reflective practice and continuous learning

  7. The creative workforce

  8. Getting, and staying, in the state of flow

  9. Creating resilient workspaces

JVAT’s one-day  workshop identified some known items which I see the company struggling with specific use of productive time management techniques.The information and practices taught can be used for wellbeing as well as preventing injuries from stress, anger or anxiety. You use these techniques at work to improve productivity, as well as improve your way of life at home. 

It has been six months since the workshop and I have noticed a marked improvement in my team’s productivity, results and all-round wellbeing. We are five months into 2019 and have already accomplished most of our 12-month goals. I am looking forward to seeing the results from the next online survey to see how our resilience profile has changed from the baseline. 

It is without hesitation that I recommend JVAT’s Resilience and Wellbeing program.
