Mental Health Awareness Helps You Be Even Better

As a fast-growing, successful business, your biggest strength is your people.

Since the first lockdown, a record number of employees are experiencing stress and poor mental health.  Depression has more than doubled and anxiety has increased significantly as has loneliness among younger people. It’s estimated that the yearly cost of poor mental health is equivalent to £1300 per employee in the UK.

Many businesses are now concerned about how best to support their managers and staff but aren’t sure how to have conversations about mental health.  Some are worried about getting it wrong, the legal implications and the impact on their reputation and bottom line.

As a workplace mental health and wellbeing trainer, I help businesses to talk about mental health and turn employee wellbeing into a strategic advantage. My expertise includes mental health first aid, suicide prevention, clinical nutritional therapy, yoga and mindfulness.

In the past 3 years, I’ve trained more than 500 managers and staff from well established organisations such as:

Deloitte, Mind, Allianz, IPSOS MORI, We Transfer, Vonage, BDO UK, McKinsey, ACAS, the NHS, We Transfer and Cabinet Office.

For an informal chat about how your business can benefit from training, contact me via esther@thriveandwell.co.uk or book a discovery call.
