Wellbeing is good for business
Healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive. Employers across the UK are acting now to support the wellbeing of their people and create mentally healthy businesses.
Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million working days lost every year.
Mental ill health costs UK employers £34.9 billion each year
What we can offer you
Our training and consultancy is here to support you to manage wellbeing proactively and minimise the impact of mental ill health on work and life. We’ll work alongside you to deliver training that complements and enhances your existing wellbeing strategy, if you have one. If you don’t, we’ll get you started on that journey and guide you along the way.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England training courses teach people to spot the signs of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support. We don’t teach people to be therapists, but we do teach people to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
By skilling your organisation in MHFA you can:
- Give your people the tools to keep themselves and their colleagues healthy
- Encourage them to access support when it’s needed, for a faster recovery
- Empower people with a long term mental health issue or disability to thrive in work
- Stop preventable health issues arising by building a supportive culture around mental health
- Help to embed positive, long term cultural change across your organisation
