Many of us spend a significant amount of time in the workplace. Having fulfilment at work can be good for your mental health and overall wellbeing. According to the Mental Health Foundation, addressing wellbeing at work can increase productivity by as much as 12%.
Teams that feel supported and connected to each other will ultimately work better together. The positive connections we make as part of our working lives can have a positive impact on us too
At Mental Health Innovations, we know the importance of being able to have positive mental wellbeing in the workplace. Our research found that more than half (52%) of employees don’t feel comfortable talking to their manager about mental health. Given the impact that management has on an organisation, it’s vital that they are equipped with the skills to help build a supportive culture; one where employees can feel listened to and be provided with further support or signposting if they need it.
We work with businesses to equip leadership teams with the knowledge and training to hold supportive conversations around mental wellbeing. We provide a range of digital and face-to-face mental health training and tools to help employers improve employee wellbeing and facilitate positive conversations in the workplace.
