Mental Wellbeing is good for business - healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive.

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 and costs UK employers an estimated £34.9 billion each year - the equivalent of £1,300 for every employee in the UK workforce. 

Simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace will allow employers to save 30% or more of these costs.

Framework for creating a healthy working environment

Based on the internationally recognised MHFA England model we believe the most effective way to create a healthy working environment is to train people in mental health awareness and skills at a blend of levels throughout your organisation.
