Edu-c8 Mental Health & Wellbeing

Our passion is to raise mental health awareness in the workplace and reduce the stigma it can have. The training we provide will empower individuals at all levels within an organisation to understand, manage and promote mental health.

Research suggests that improving UK workplace mental health management could reduce employers’ losses attributed to mental illness by 30%.

Every business in the UK is affected by mental health issues in the work place. Whilst there is now a growing appreciation for employers to address this a lot still need to be done.

Mental health illness costs UK businesses around £34.9 billion every year, this equates to £1300 per employee.

Healthy employees are happier and more productive. Looking after mental health is as important as physical health. The provision of high quality mental health training will make a lasting difference. It will give individuals the knowledge to enable early detection of mental ill health and the confidence to support someone who is facing it.
