Collaborations, public appearances and resources
People with mental health disorders are often subject to discrimination, stereotyped stigma and social exclusion. These present as major barriers to their recovery, wellbeing and quality of life.
Mental health illnesses are all to common in the workplace. It is the leading cause of sickness absence. Over 70 million workdays are lost each year due to mental health issues in the UK alone.
Taking into account the impact that mental health has on the individuals, families and society: the overall cost to British businesses is estimated to be between 33-42 billion pounds per year with figures on the rise. We believe a vast majority of this expense could be saved by early intervention techniques: quite simply, the working environment needs to adjust to their emplyees emotional and social needs, they need to be able to identify possible symptoms of mental health issues and know how to respond.
Our workshops are regulated by Qualifications Network UK (QNUK) an awarding organisation providing accredited certifications. QNUK are regulated by The Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual).
