Why mental health and wellbeing is a priority for your business.
Last year the Government published ‘Thriving at Work’ and found that 15% of employees have a mental health condition, this figure doesn’t include those suffering from stress or those vulnerable to mental illness.
MIND reports that 1 in 5 people call in sick because of work stress and the ONS estimate sick days due to mental health are increasing by 25% each year. Mental and physical health are significant costs to businesses. It is estimated that the UK GDP would have been £25 billion higher in 2015 if it was not for the economic consequences of mental health (Mental Health Foundation).
