Mental health is the third most significant cause of absence in UK workplaces -- affecting one in four adults in the UK. This has wide ramifications for employee engagement and staff turnover in your organisation. 

However, the Mental Health Foundation estimates that policies addressing wellbeing at work increase productivity by as much as 12%. These policies are often simple, related to removing stigma, encouraging open conversations, and ensuring that mental health is a workplace priority. 

Join us for ‘Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace’, where you will receive actionable advice and best practice from seasoned experts, and ultimately learn how to create positive change around mental health in your organisation.
