Mental health problems are all too common in the workplace and it is the leading cause of sickness absence. A staggering 70 million workdays are lost each year due to mental health problems in the UK, costing employers approximately £2.4 billion per year.
An essential building block for workplace mental health is the ability to have open, authentic conversations about mental health in the workplace, both individually and on a strategic level. This is more important than ever as we recover from the impact of the pandemic.
Mental Health at Work CIC is a subsidiary of the Mental Health Foundation providing tailored mental health programmes to organisations of all sizes, focusing on making mental health conversations a part of everyday working life.
