Managing Mental Health in the Workplace

Scheduled Course Date


Mental ill-health is responsible for 30%-50% of all long-term sickness absence and disability amongst the working population in the UK. Around 20% of the working age population suffer from some form of mental illness which is estimated to cost employers in the UK around £30billion per annum. It is also likely that around half of us will suffer from a period of poor mental health at some point in our lives.
