Mental Health Awareness
We know that 1 in 6 workers will experience depression, anxiety or problems relating to stress at any one time. According to research by Mind:
- One in five people take a day off sick because of stress, but 90 per cent of those people give a different reason for their absence. This is often due to fear or shame.
- One in ten people have resigned from a job due to stress and one in four people have considered resigning due to work pressure.
- One in five people felt they couldn’t tell their boss if they were overly stressed.
- Of the 22% of people who have a diagnosed mental health problem, less than half had actually told their boss about their diagnosis.
- Over half of managers said they would like to do more to improve staff mental wellbeing, but they needed more training and/or guidance and 46 per cent said they would like to do more but it is not a priority in their organisation.
To help tackle these problems and boost wellbeing and productivity for people and organisations, Keystone offers Mental Health and Wellbeing training.
