Mental Health First Aid

Did you know that each year approximately

  • 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health condition
  • 1 in 6 employees experience common mental health problems in the workplace
  • Mental health costs the UK economy £26bn through lost production, sick pay and other associated costs*

Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best and increases staff turnover which is costly for any employer.

Mental health conditions are one of society’s biggest killers as they are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination. Research has shown that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers.

We are working with organisations like yours to help combat mental health. This is done by training your employees to implement a positive mental health culture in the workplace.
