Mental health problems are being recognised by government and private business alike as being a major cause lost productivity within the UK.
There is a liklihood that one sixth of your workforce are suffering from a common mental health problem, including anxiety, depression and others.
As a consequence the estimate is that one fifth of sickness absence days are the result of mental health related issues.
Those who do not take sickness absence can cause further financial loss through presenteeism or staff turnover.
Reducing sickness absence through better understanding and management of mental health problems.
Supporting staff stay well before they require further intervention for their mental health services.
Identifying and supporting staff who may be underperforming through mental health related presenteeism.
Below are our six pre-developed modules intended to be delivered to those in a leadership position. Each module is experiential, meaning that it is most effective when delivered to up to nine participants who are happy to be actively involved in the learning and are comfortable discussing mental health in a professional context with colleagues. Each module will take around a half day to deliver, including comfort break and also includes printed supplementary material to take away. It is possible to comission the delivery up to three modules in a standard eight hour working day, which will include lunch and two comfort breaks.

This course is designed to be delivered to up to fifteen participants who are not actively struggling with their mental health. The modules are designed to be delivered together over one day.
The purpose is to raise awareness and support people before they become unwell at work, using evidence informed techniques that can be practiced alone.

If you feel that the modular courses offered here do not meet the idiosyncratic needs for your particular business, we are open to developing and delivering training package for your leadership or staff. This will involve an initial free telephone consult to explore what makes you, your business and staff unique. We can then collaborate on what mental health related training may be most beneficial for your business.
Ultimately you are the experts in your field and hold an awareness of the particular challenges of working in it. If we feel we can effectively support the problems you face, we will negotiate a fixed rate for design and delivery of the training.
