In 2007, every single people in the UK cost employers £1,056 per year due to poor mental health, whether they were experiencing ill mental health or not.
Despite a huge increase in awareness and the stigma surrounding mental health slowly breaking down, this figure still rises. In 2018, it was £1,304 per person employed privately in the UK.
In our organisations, 1 in 6 people will be experiencing difficulties with their mental health 77% of us will experience this is our professional life. Despite this, only 3% of adults receive therapeutic support, 75% of them unable to access the help. Without tangible, practical ways in which to support mental health, these issues will continue to worsen, the cost to businesses will continue to grow and our people will remain unsupported.
Our multi award-winning training provides solutions into two categories.
What do you do when someone returns to work? How do you manage and support them in a way that won’t make them unwell again? Has someone disclosed they have a mental health condition?
We don’t believe that just signposting is enough anymore, to really solve these problems we need to be equipped with the practical know-how to proactively approach and support someone at work. That’s why we worked with a variety of healthcare professionals to develop a programme which will equip ‘Mentors’ within your business to develop healthy ways of working with people returning to work or with a short or long term mental health condition and to effectively implement reasonable adjustments.
Our half-day training course helps provide people within your organisation with an evidence-based management style which has been specifically designed so your Mentors can work with staff to understand how their condition is affecting them and what they need to do during the day or where their focus needs to be to remain well and thrive at work.
By working in this way with our clients we have drastically been able to help reduce time off, increase loyalty and performance across the business.

Our interactive Employee Training focuses on not only increasing emotional intelligence by up to 93% but providing practical evidence-based strategies to help your employees cope with issues they may face with their own mental health. We won’t just list symptoms in bullet points, our fun, interactive sessions will help to give your employees a real understanding and insight into different mental health issues so we can develop ways we identify these symptoms in ourselves and others.
By delivering our training in this way, getting your staff engaged with mental health, we can increase emotional intelligence by 20% more than our competitors.
Providing this understanding and appreciation rather than just awareness helps to encourage people to tackle the issues and by providing practical evidence-based tools within our training, it gives continuity of how to manage and control these experiences to prevent them from developing into a more serious issue.
“We’ll have them back anytime!”
