There is a business impact to the lack of transparency that exists around mental health at work.

The costs to a business of absenteeism through work related stress; diagnosed and poorly managed mental health issues; being at work tired and distracted; are high. Figures are put at between £74 bn – £99 bn per year as the impact of Mental Health.   However you look at the numbers that’s huge.

Part of the solution is to educate and equip a number of staff with knowledge and skill to make it OK to talk about Mental Health. Better education can remove stigma and create a healthier workplace. It’s also good for business.

Join me Anne Archer, local business owner, Mental Health First Aid Instructor, mental health crisis counsellor, coach and mental health advocate and take some steps building healthy workforces.

This is what you get

  • Signs and symptoms of common mental health issues
  • A framework using 5 basic steps to use to start a conversation with someone who is struggling
  • Guide someone towards appropriate treatment and other sources of help
  • The opportunity to join a local network of like-minded people to make a difference
  • Understand the stigma that exists around mental health
  • Participants will have the chance to think about their own mental health.
  • Access to tools and techniques
  • A comprehensive manual with updates
  • Accreditation as a Mental Health First Aider (MHFA England)
  • Refreshments including a light lunch both days
