Research suggests that mental ill health costs British businesses an average of £1,000 per year per employee. Yet how many of your managers would recognise if a member of staff was experiencing mental health or emotional wellbeing issues? And how many of your staff would know when to seek help themselves?
Share essential mental health knowledge
With mental ill health common in the workplace yet so often hidden, our workshops provide essential knowledge that can reduce distress, save organisations money, and even save lives.
The workshops give people an understanding of the key conditions -and more importantly the individual nature of mental health conditions. Participants learn how to spot symptoms, talk to colleagues appropriately, and guide individuals (including themselves) towards support when needed.
Create a healthier, more resilient workforce
The training is suitable – and recommended – for all members of staff. When everyone has a better understanding of mental wellbeing, they can better look after themselves and others – and you build a healthier, more resilient team.
We can also provide additional elements for managers, covering how to help staff protect their mental health and how to manage employee mental ill health in the workplace. Topics include developing a work culture that promotes mental wellbeing, supporting employees in meeting the demands of the job as they manage ongoing illness, and managing successful returns to work after absence.
Get better outcomes
With a deeper understanding of mental health, managers have greater confidence in talking about the issues and in dealing with employees’ mental wellbeing. They’re more likely to spot early warning signs and be able to take a positive approach that helps the person get help faster and improves the likelihood of successful outcomes for both the individual and the organisation.
