Mental health matters in business as in life. The facts speak for themselves:
· UK businesses lose an estimated £30bn to mental health illnesses annually
· At least 1 in 4 adults will experience mental health difficulties in any one year
· Mental health is the second biggest burden of disease in the UK, costing companies millions of lost work hours
And it’s a growing problem, impacting on productivity and profit as well as morale and motivation. That’s why every organisation needs to build in a strategy for identifying and dealing with issues around mental health in the workplace.
Physical ailments and illnesses are a major cause of employee absence. Many of these physical ailments are triggered or exacerbated by poor mental health. However, they can be difficult to spot. Unlike most physical illnesses, the signs of poor mental health aren’t always visible. You may work closely alongside someone for years but be totally unaware that they have a debilitating mental or psychological condition. So, supporting and valuing good mental health within your organisation is crucial to wellbeing and performance.
Mental Health First Aid and Awareness training
Research has shown the demonstrable benefits of putting proactive measures in place to raise and support good mental health.
Our Mental Health First Aid and Awareness training is designed to help employers and their teams to recognise when a colleague is in crisis or distress, equipping them with the knowledge of when and how to intervene. Our programmes help participants understand how to support colleagues by signposting them to appropriate help, as well as assisting them on the journey of recovery, wellbeing and mental fitness.
