Mental Health in the Workplace Overview

Mental Health in the Workplace - Creating Safer Workplaces Together

Poor mental health in the workplace is a significant issue that can cause a lot of sickness absence among your staff. Unfortunately, it often goes unrecognized and unaddressed, leading to low productivity and even presenteeism. Additionally, the cost of poor mental health is astronomical and affects not just the economy, but also individual businesses. However, the most devastating impacts of a stressful work environment are the personal costs that thousands of employees face.

Often, declining mental health results from poor working environments, and businesses need to be aware of their legal responsibilities,  in effectively managing staff who may be struggling with such challenges.

 It’s crucial to recognize that relationships in the workplace can be a key source of stress, and it’s up to all of us to create an environment in which everyone can feel supported and empowered.

Managers, colleagues, and employees often lack the knowledge, confidence, or skills to interact effectively and appropriately support individuals who may be becoming mentally unwell. This lack of understanding can contribute to a culture of stigma and fear around mental ill health, leading to increased stress and reduced productivity at work.

At Strongmind, we believe that building mentally healthy workplaces is essential to reducing sickness absence and creating a positive work environment for everyone.

Our range of courses can help managers and staff at all levels improve their understanding of the issues and develop the skills they need to provide the right support when it’s needed. Whether you prefer face-to-face, virtual, or e-learning solutions, we can provide a training program that meets your needs.
