Health and wellbeing at work

Thrive and Well promotes positive workplace health and wellbeing through workshops and training. We help organisations to nurture staff mental health, encourage self-care and create healthier, more productive workplaces. 

The need to prioritise employee mental health to the same degree as physical health has become increasingly important in recent years.

 

According to the Mental Health at Work Report 2018: 

  • 61% of employees have experienced mental health issues due to work or where work was a contributing factor.
     

  • 1 in 3 employees has been formally diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their lifetime. 
     

  • 16% of employees felt able to disclose a mental health issue to their manager

 

Mental Ill-health costs the equivalent of £1,300 per employee

Mental ill-health costs UK employers £34.9 billion each year - the equivalent of £1,300 for every employee in the UK workforce (Centre for Mental Health, 2017).  

 

Training staff in mental health first aid helps to reduce absenteeism and support a productive and mentally healthy workplace.
