Mental Health in the Workplace - 17/18 September

NEW for 2019 and Preceding Government Legislation:

Mental Health in the Workplace (Level 3)

Working conditions can have a huge impact on the mental health of your employees. Equally the mental health of your valuable workforce can impact the working environment. 

  1. Women in full-time employment are nearly twice as likely to have a common mental health problem as full-time employed men (19.8% vs 10.9%).
  2. Evidence suggests that 12.7% of all sickness absence days in the UK can be attributed to mental health conditions.
  3. Better mental health support in the workplace can save UK businesses up to £8 billion per year.
