Mental ill health is now the leading cause of absenteeism, but 90% of those lie about the real reason they’re off sick as they’re worried about their employer’s reaction. With 1/6 of workers currently suffering from a mental health problem and work being cited as the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives (CIPD Health & Wellbeing at Work Survey 2018), it’s a pertinent time to put some preventative mental health strategies in to place. According to the Centre for Mental Health, positive steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace can enable employers to save at least 30% of the cost of lost production and staff turnover.
Delivered by ‘Mind’ qualified coaches and psychotherapists, our workplace mental health workshops, and courses aim to raise awareness, silence the stigma and help put practical and preventative measures in to place.
Mental Health Workshops
“Following the ‘Stress Less & Ease Anxiety’ workshop, everyone is buzzing about the changes and new routines they’re going to implement.”
“Mental Health for Managers was by far the most insightful and useful workshop we’ve ever had. I think it’s brilliant to take the time to talk about mental health in the workplace.”
‘Managing Digital Distractions was extremely interesting and engaging. The subject matter was well presented with the perfect amount of interaction with the audience. The workshop definitely made everyone more aware of their own phone use and how to take small steps to reduce dependency on it.’
A great perspective on reducing stress, covering plenty of material at a healthy pace. You have created positive changes for everyone in the group – Thank you!
An excellent initiative. Well presented and informative workshop. It’s prompted me to change my perception of other people’s situations and not be judgemental or presumptive.
It was the most engaged the group have been in any session we’ve held so far. The content was interesting and Body Image is such an important topic that needs to be talked about more often! Pippa was a really engaging presenter which I think made people more at ease when sharing their own experiences and joining in the discussion.
“I loved the interactive and conversational aspect of this workshop.”
“Resilience Toolkit’ was really well received and we’ve had some great feedback. I thought Jill was really warm and supportive, whilst still making us challenge ourselves and think about the things we do which aren’t helping us build resilience.”
“It was an insightful and excellent talk, and a real eye-opener. We loved the fact it was backed up by real studies – the team here appreciate that kind of detail.”
“As a result of this course, I’m going to make an effort to put time aside for self care, as well as focus on what is important and do one thing at a time!”
“By the end of the Shine Offline workshop I had lots of tips, tools & apps to to make sure I control my phone and not the other way around! I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone with a smartphone.”
