Wellbeing Awareness Training

What is wellbeing awareness training?

The first step in improving employee wellbeing is simply to normalise the discussion surrounding it.

Mental illness is the second-largest source of burden of disease in England. Mental illnesses are more common, long-lasting, and impactful than other health conditions.

Big Numbers!

During 2020, 13.6 million days of sickness absence caused by mental health issues were recorded in the UK.

Mental Health Training

35% of line managers reported a wish for basic training in common mental health conditions.

Poor mental health among employees costs UK employers £42bn – £45bn each year.

Over the past decade, it has become increasingly apparent that mental health is a major public health issue, with an impact on both business and personal lives rivalling that of physical injury and sickness.

This has been further exacerbated by the impact of COVID-19 and lockdown.

It is therefore vital to remove barriers presented by the stigma and stereotypes commonly surrounding the topic, to enable early identification and intervention.

In conjunction with, or as an alternative to, our accredited Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training, these less-formal awareness courses can provide a cost-effective means of rolling out a company wellbeing programme across a large number of staff.

In addition to directly benefiting employees, the provision of such support offers an excellent return-on-investment (ROI) in terms of mitigating against a number of significant business risks:

How we can help you with wellbeing awareness training?
