Support for employers

Mental health is an issue your organisation can’t afford to ignore:

  • Almost one in three people have experienced mental health issues while in employment
  • Mental ill-health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK, costing an average of £1,035 per employee per year
  • 95% of employees calling in sick with stress gave a different reason
