Mental Health At Work

Bespoke and Mental Health First Aid England training

Mental ill-health is responsible for approximately 70 million working days lost every year.

As we get used to new ways of living and working, support for mental health at work is in high demand. Research carried out by the CIPD in 2021 found that 80% of employers were concerned about the impact of the pandemic on the mental health of their employees. 

Stress, anxiety and depression are major causes of sickness absence in the UK.  According to official figures, all three have increased significantly since the start of lockdown.   

In early 2021, one in five adults experienced depressive symptoms, more than double that seen before the pandemic (Office for National Statistics).
