Never has there been a time where mental health has been at the forefront of the news and conversations.
“One in four people in the UK will have a mental health problem at some point. While mental health problems are common, most are mild, tend to be short-term and are normally successfully treated, with medication, by a GP.”
With the rise of recognition of the importance of safety of your employees mental health as well as psychical health socially responsible organisations are putting in place training, procedures and processes to ensure that their people are given the right support.
The benefits are both moral and profitable.
The ‘Thriving at Work’ report that was published in October 2017 highlighted:
There is a large annual cost to employers of between £33 billion and £42 billion (with over half of the cost coming from presenteeism – when individuals are less productive due to poor mental health in work) with additional costs from sickness absence and staff turnover.
To help achieve a more supportive workplace one of the key measures the report recommends is to develop mental health awareness among employees and to routinely monitor employee mental health and wellbeing.
In order for organisations work towards this, we are providing three courses with various levels of intensity and objectives.
All three of our courses have the option to attend in person or to attend as a live stream and are accredited by FAIB.
