MENTAL HEALTH IN THE WORKPLACE
Mental Health - whether it's anxiety, depression, a relationship issue or an addiction, it doesn't take time off when you go to work. Mental health and well being needs to be a 24/7 focus, not just by employees but also employers.
Long term mental health conditions lead to up to 300,000 people leaving their jobs each year, costing the UK economy a loss of up to 99 BILLION POUNDS(1 & 2). Did you know that by providing adequate levels of mental health support for your workforce, UK businesses could save up to 8 BILLION POUNDS A YEAR? With 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem each year(3), it is far more common than you may think.
By promoting self-care, self-awareness and encouraging staff to #ReachOutSpeakUpShare, you have a happier, healthier and more productive workforce.
