How much is poor mental health costing your business?
Annually, 12.8 million working days are lost as a result of poor mental health, at an economic and social cost of £105 Billion in England.
At least one in four people will suffer poor mental health at some point in their lives. 57% of working days lost are due to work related stress, anxiety, or depression.
Safeguarding the mental wellbeing of your workforce is as important as safeguarding their physical wellbeing, and employers have an obligation to do so under Health and Safety legislation.
What is First Aid for Mental Health?
First aid for Mental Health is the initial support provided to a person experiencing a mental health problem until professional help is received or until the crisis is resolved. The aim of having First Aiders for Mental Health are:
- Preserve life where a person could be a danger to themselves or others
- Alleviate suffering by providing immediate comfort and support
- Prevent the condition from developing into a more serious problem
Promote recovery of good mental health by signposting and obtaining professional support
Regardless of the size of your business, providing mental health support safeguards your workforce and your productivity and combats stigma.
325,000 working days a year are lost in schools due to stress or mental ill health, and it is a key contributor to teachers leaving the profession.
