Delivering Online Mental Health & Safety Training to Businesses in the UK
Mental ill-health in the workplace costs the UK economy £30-45 billion a year.
Work-related stress, depression or anxiety is defined as a harmful reaction people have to undue pressures and demands placed on them at work.
The latest estimates from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) show the total number of working days lost due to this condition in 2016/17 was 12.5 million days and stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 40% of all work-related ill health cases and 49% of all working days lost due to ill health.
Improving the management of mental health at work can reduce related costs by 33% yet the mental health of employees is still ignored by most employers, despite having a massive financial impact on their organisation. This is reflected in most workplace training programs, which focus on physical health and safety exclusively.
