In England, 1 in 3 are likely to suffer a common mental health problem and mental ill health is estimating to be costing UK businesses between £33bn and £42bn a year. That means most likely that some colleagues are struggling with a mental health illness. How one responds and supports colleagues is vital to the health of the individuals as well as the company itself. The event will help delegates identify the early signs, and provide practical ways to create a mentally healthy workplace and provide effective ways to preserve employees' wellbeing and tackle the stigma that still exists.
