We all have mental health just like we all have physical health, and like physical health our mental health can change. The challenge for organisations is how best to manage, prevent and support these complex journeys.

We’re at a critical moment in the nation’s mental health. Recent HSE statistics revealed in Great Britain work-related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 44% of work-related ill health in 2018/19.⁴ Other analysis shows:
- 70million work days are lost each year due to mental health problems in the UK¹
- £33bn-£42bn cost of poor mental health in the workplace²
- 300,000 people with a long term mental health problem lose their jobs each year²
It’s time to take a fresh look at mental health and join forward thinking organisations seeking to support the full mental health journey from:
- Early education and awareness
- Mild symptoms and warning signs
- Worsening symptoms or recurring/relapsed episodes.
- Persistent and severe episodes, a risk to self or others
Organisations’ wellbeing programmes and benefits should seek to address and support all contributing factors, whilst consider how individuals function and the support available to them, when they’re healthy, at risk, unwell and on the mend.
