In the UK, mental health illness costs UK employers £26 billion every year and 40% of long term absence among non-manual workers is caused by stress or mental illness.

That's why, Mental Health Resource deliver tailor-made 'Understanding Mental Health' workshops to local companies, so we can help promote well-being & build a stronger community. 

In 2018, we provided training for 90 employees across 5 local schools + businesses, including Tunbridge Wells Borough Council + Fidelity International.

Our qualified professionals, with specific expertise in the field of workplace mental health issues, help employees recognize signs of mental health problems, find better ways of supporting staff and improve well-being.

We cover a wide range of topics ranging from language, stigma & discrimination, to common mental health problems such as depression & anxiety and also how to support colleagues at work who might have mental health illnesses.

Please note that our training is tailor-made to match each company's specific requirements, so the cost of the training and venue varies.
