Mental Health Awareness
Good mental health and wellbeing is critical to ensuring peak performance in your staff, and consequently in your business. Although significant progress has been made in the public sphere in raising awareness of mental health issues, progress is far slower in the workplace. Although 1 in 4 people struggle with mental health problems, and 1 in 6 suffer from a mental illness, only 16% of staff are actually willing to disclose these issues to their managers due to the stigma associated with mental health issues.
As with all our training, this is an example of a typical course on mental health, we are committed to working with you to create the perfect course to fit your organisational needs.
