Employees can feel overwhelmed without strategies to cope with workplace demands. Feeling this pressure over extended periods can cause employees’ mental health to suffer, impacting job satisfaction, productivity and staff turnover.
Our mental health courses address common workplace mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, and stress. They raise awareness about workplace mental health issues and help staff develop healthy coping mechanisms and openly communicate. Providing training also shows you care as an employer, making staff feel valued and able to communicate openly. These workplace developments help improve productivity and staff retention as well as reduce the costs of absenteeism or poor mental health.
According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), there were 914,000 cases of work-related stress, depression and anxiety reported in 2021/22 in Great Britain. This resulted in a total loss of 17 million working days, which is more than those lost to physical injury or ill health.
Training can address mental health issues before they impact your employees’ overall wellbeing and company performance. These courses equip employees with valuable tools and strategies to manage their own mental health and support others. They also help to reduce the stigma surrounding these issues and promote open communication within the workplace.
These improvements help employees become more resilient, engaged and productive, which contributes to company performance and growth.
