Studies reveal that workplaces are losing increasing sums of money due to staff being less productive or altogether absent from work due to mental health problems. It has been estimated that more effective mental health support in the workplace could save UK businesses up to £8 billion per year. Our Tackling Mental Health in the Workplace event seeks to provide delegates with the necessary information, insight and skills to raise awareness and implement changes that tackle the issue in their workplaces.
The conference offers practical advice on removing the mental health stigma and encouraging a healthy workforce. We will discuss together how you can prepare your workforce for the challenge and help ensure that there is effective support made available at all levels of your place of work.
