Mental Health in your Workplace

If you are an in-house HR professional based in Coventry and Warwickshire and interested in joining the Talent and People Alliance, which I organise, then please contact me on 07771 686077.

The next meeting  on 16 November is about:

Raising awareness to proactively support mental ill health within your organisation.

Did you know that;

Over £70 billion is the estimated costs to the UK’s economy as a result of mental health each year?

Or that over  £29 billion is the estimated cost due to absenteeism to UK businesses per year?

And 25% of the population experience mental health problems each year?

There is a growing awareness of Mental Health in the workplace, but stigmas do still exist and businesses are only just starting to tackle the challenge of improving how they cope with the impact of poor mental health amongst their workforce.

By effectively supporting the mental wellbeing of their staff, businesses will have a  happier, engaged and thriving workforce – contributing to continued growth and success.

In this interactive session Lisa Whittleton, Director at Illuminate VR Services Ltd, will raise awareness of mental health generally: providing insight into the impact of mental ill health within UK businesses. The session will include discussions around some of the barriers faced by organisations and how to best overcome them. There will be time to ask questions relating to your workplace and for sharing of best practice, enabling you to take away some actions on next steps and leave feeling better equipped to support mental wellbeing within your company.
