The free mental health and wellness resource built BY the real estate industry FOR anyone connected to the real estate industry and their families.
WHY A REALCARE APP
The RISE collective has formed a self-funded initiative called the REALcare APP, which is free to access mental health resource built by real estate agents for real estate agents and their families, in conjunction with the technology and public health experts at Utility Creative, including David Stanley, who have produced a similar resource for the police forces across Australia and New Zealand.
In 2014 the Coroner’s report of Victoria officially classified real estate as a ‘high-risk industry’ with an average annual suicide rate of 13 people per 100,000 employees, placing it higher on the danger spectrum than policing.
Addressing major stressors including financial health, well-being checks, guidance for self-care, as well as rapid response features for crisis intervention, the app is seeking to address data-driven stressors and risk factors as identified by literature review and immersion research from the real estate industry.
