mental health facts

These are all frightening statistics, which demonstrate the prevalence of mental ill health amongst the workplace and the need to take action.  We all have mental health and we are all susceptible to mental ill health, which is an increasing challenge in today’s society.  As pressures on the individual to perform better, achieve more and balance a multitude of challenges grows, it is a problem which cannot be ignored for businesses large or small. 

Research shows that the ROI of early-stage supporting activities such as mental health de-stigmatising campaigns, mandatory training on wellbeing and activities to support an employee’s resilience can range up to 8:1 (Source: Deloitte).
