Why is this important?  The cost of mental health at work is at an all time high:

  • £26Bn – the cost of mental ill-health at work to the UK economy *
  • 41% of staff are either stressed or very stressed at work **
  • £1035 – the average cost per employee of mental ill-health every year **
  • 39% of work related illness is due to stress, anxiety & depression ***

How much is this costing your organisation?

 

Organisations benefit through:

Increased:
  • Awareness of mental health
  • Employee engagement at all levels
  • Productivity
  • Staff well-being
  • Compliance – The Equality Act 2010
Reduced:
  • Absenteeism
  • Business costs
  • Training costs
  • Presenteeism

How does it work?

 

Original drama runs all the way through the programme with an anchor man to guide the participants.

Open and closed questions testing the knowledge of the participant as they work through the different exercises.

Downloadable tools can be used saved for future use.

There are 3 online Episodes that can be done to suit your timetable – stop and start when you like (your data will be saved).

To embed learning, 3 weeks are recommended between Episodes.  There are optional discussion groups after each Episode which are self directed and guided by downloadable notes.

Individual and organisational reports are available once the programme is completed.
