    Doberman designs the world's first complete Mental Health First Aid Kit

    In today’s world, mental health problems have become just as common as physical health issues. That’s why we’re very proud of the new first aid kit we’ve designed together with the Swedish Agency for Disability Policy Co-ordination, Handisam.

    The New First Aid Kit is an integrated service and product with the aim to prevent long-term sick leave by erasing taboos when it comes to attitudes towards mental health. The service integrates a wall mounted first aid kit for workplaces (with the traditional bandages and wet wipes) with an easy-to-use self evaluation test, a hotline direct number to a certified mental health care professional and a quick guide how to help a colleague.

    The core idea originally came from “Sommardesignkontoret”, a design project for undergraduate students started by SVID and directed, mentored and hosted by Doberman in 2012. The New First Aid Kit is developed together with our partnerns Swedbank, Sveriges Byggindustrier and EON and is currently being tested against 1 000 people around Sweden.

    Doberman strengthens its Stockholm office leadership

    To support our ongoing growth in both Stockholm and New York we are happy to announce the new Managing Director for our Stockholm office – Klara Adolphson, currently Director of Innovation Leadership at Vinnova, Sweden’s public innovation agency.

    – In Klara, we’ve found a natural leader for Doberman in Stockholm. She has a intuitive understanding for what leadership in creative organizations means, says Eva Swartz Grimaldi, Chair of the Board at Doberman.

    The recruitment adds to Doberman’s existing leadership. Anders Frostenson will continue as Managing Director of the New York office and Lisa Lindström will continue her leadership as Doberman’s global CEO and strategic advisor to Doberman’s clients.

    – Klara is an amazing addition to both our organization and our clients. She knows innovation through and through. But maybe even more importantly, she’s a soul mate to all of us at Doberman. She shares our beliefs, which is crucial for creating true magic together, says Lisa Lindström, CEO at Doberman.

    As unit director at Vinnova, Klara has led the work of financing initiatives that acknowledge increased innovation capability in Swedish organizations. Klara has a background as a management consultant and she holds a degree from the legendary hybrid business and design school Kaospilot in Denmark.

    – I’m so eager to get started! To be honest, Doberman is a truly unique organization when it comes to their design and innovation culture. This shows in everything, from how they collaborate to their challenging client engagements. I’m really looking forward to contribute to that, says Klara Adolphson.
