Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behaviour could be affected.
According to the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), one in five people in the workplace experience a mental health condition. The effects of untreated mental health in the workplace are well documented, with an estimated cost to UK employers of up to £45bn every year from employee turnover, absenteeism and reduced productivity.
Despite positive strides made over the last decade to improve access to support and open up the conversation, mental health in the workplace is still surrounded by social stigma. Now more than ever, in the midst of a global pandemic, businesses simply cannot afford to let their commitment to mental health falter.
