We all have

Mental Health...

 

Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. According to MHFA England Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million days lost a year and this is a cost to UK employers of £34.9 billion each year. We know that people can recover from ill mental health; recovery is possible and likely. Recovery is even more likely the earlier that we get support; there is a lot we can do to prevent ill mental health, prevention is key in building resilience.

It is a simple requirement that organisations put in a platform and resources to support employees with mental health sooner to work together to ensure resilience and interventions that prevent mental health. By doing this organisations will see a drop in sickness, absenteeism, relationship issues and an all-round happier fulfilled workforce. All the MHFA courses are accredited by Mental Health First Aid England.

So with all this in mind why is it that according to Perk Box; ‘Almost half (45%) of UK workers say that their place of work does not have anything in place to help reduce employees’ stress levels and improve their mental wellbeing’ and only 6% of employees offer any form of training on mental health, wellbeing and stress management, resilience training.
