Mental Wellbeing

Mental health problems are common; approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year1, and it goes without saying that it’s important to look after the mental health of your employees. Although it’s nice to be altruistic, promoting good mental health can also have a positive impact on your business – healthy employees work harder, are better team players, and are more productive.

The Thriving at Work review stated that poor mental health costs the UK economy up to £99bn a year – of which £42bn is a direct cost to employers2.

Understanding what impacts their mental health through their day-to-day lives and then supporting your employees across all stages of the mental health cycle has become increasingly important.
