Why Mental Health Training?
The cost to UK employers is estimated at £45 Billion in the UK, this figure is taken from the Deloitte report 2020. The biggest cost isn't absence but in fact through presenteeism.
For every £1 invested in employee assistance programmes, the business return ranges from £3to £8. Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of mental health charity, Mind, says “the cost of failing to address mental health in the workplace is clear. Workplace mental health should be a priority for organisations across the UK.”
