We aren’t talking about finances. We are talking about your workforce.
Healthy people are happier, more engaged and more productive.
Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest causes of sickness absence in our society.
Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million working days lost every year.
It affects 1 in 4 people each year.
Businesses have a Medical First Aider to treat physical workplace injuries.
So why not for Mental Health?
Well, did you know there are Mental Health First Aider courses?
MHFA England is the only provider of licensed Mental Health First Aid Instructor Training in England.
To date, they have 1,800 qualified instructors and have trained over 400,000 people in England.
Having a Mental Health First Aider helps your organisation to spot signs and symptoms in the workplace, enabling you to provide Mental Health First Aid.
Taking this simple step to improve the management of Mental Health in the workplace allows employers to cut sick day costs by 30% or more.
As a company, we have taken this step and put some of our staff through this training and we now have several Mental Health First Aiders and Mental Health First Aid Instructors at Quanta who provide help and support for our staff and clients.
