In recent years the world has shifted in its attitude towards mental health. Around a third of adults and young people reported that their mental health had worsened since March 2020. Despite growing awareness of this decrease in public mental health, many of those affected are still not getting the right support. Mental health awareness is important, but action can be live saving. This World Mental Health Day, we talk to Grupo Cetep as the company endeavours to educate, destigmatise, and positively impact the lives of its clientele.
A leader in health management and wellbeing, Grupo Cetep is a Chilean medical company specialising in the management and administration of mental health services. Established in 2006, the company is dedicated to providing comprehensive health and wellbeing solutions to positively impact patients’ lives. Its large team of experienced professionals possess vast expertise in the fields of private health, evidence-based medicine, and high technical quality. Grupo Cetep is proud to be certified by ISO 9001:2015 and has established an excellent reputation in the Chilean and LATAM markets for its passionate commitment to its work and development.
Grupo Cetep provides health and wellbeing solutions to people through several different strategies: promotion, training, treatment, rehabilitation, and supply of goods among others. Consistent innovation is necessary to stay ahead of the curve in mental health care. The company is a market leader, successfully incorporating lean methodologies and collaborative practices to provide its innovative resolutions. With human-centred design tools, its professional team is able to find personalised strategies that meet the needs of each individual client.
The mental health sphere must be continually developing scalable, affordable services to tackle the recent increase in mental health problems. Grupo Cetep has developed Mhaite, a digital wellbeing platform that seeks to globalise its mental health support for the Spanish-speaking population. Through a machine learning platform, Mhaite collects the user’s symptoms to establish the intensity and determine the treatment category that the patient will receive. Dependent on the urgency and symptoms, the user can be assigned a counsellor, psychologist, or psychiatrist. This digital platform will deliver effective, first-class support to those with mental health problems anywhere at any time for an affordable price.
Scientific studies have recently highlighted the impact that nutrition has on mental and emotional wellbeing. Grupo Cetep has formed a specialised food unit aimed at improving patients’ overall health. It has developed an unparalleled zero-calorie beverage, free from sweeteners, colourants, and preservatives. Containing a combination of medicinal herbs and fruits, its ingredients are sourced from the stunning Patagonia wilderness. Three varieties of the beverage have been created, each designed to harness the components unique properties. ‘Dreams’ has been designed to promote sleep induction, ‘Focus’ stimulates concentration abilities, and ‘Relax’ produces a state of tranquillity. The company will soon be launching this revolutionary product on the Chilean market.
This month, Grupo Cetep will be carrying out interventions in preparation for World Mental Health Day 2023. It will be running a campaign for companies to commit to mental health by providing their employees with psychoeducation. The firm will also be hosting a free, open seminar to discuss the causes of the recent increase in mental health problems. Another highlight will be a photographic exhibition about women and mental health in different universities across Chile.
In terms of future developments, the company plans to continue expanding its global presence. Grupo Cetep is in the process of modernising the healthcare industry by integrating pioneering technology across its departments. Over the next few months, it plans to take its services internationally to other Spanish-speaking regions, specifically Colombia, Mexico, and Florida. Grupo Cetep is in the process of carrying out research in order to launch the firm in these countries over the next year.
It is Grupo Cetep’s mission to bring people closer to their own health and wellbeing. Everyone deserves to have their voices heard and ultimately live a good quality of life. Grupo Cetep is dedicated to focusing on the needs of its clients and is constantly evolving to retain its status as a healthcare innovator. We are proud to showcase the hard work of those specialising in the mental health sector and hope that this World Mental Health Day, we can all come together to demonstrate compassion and enact positive change.
