Poor mental health is a growing concern for many organisations in a variety of sectors, with HSE figures showing that in the year leading up to 2019, a total of 602,000 workers experienced work-related stress, depression or anxiety; resulting in 12.8 million working days being lost.
Stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 54% of all working days lost due to ill health.
In addition, there are growing concerns regarding presenteeism and the impact of poor wellbeing on morale, motivation, productivity and performance.
Supporting mental health is therefore a key strategic consideration for all organisations; from both an ethical and economic perspective
Bespoke support, training and ongoing programmes (which includes webinars) are available, to address specific organisational needs; such as
- ‘Stress Awareness’
- ‘Dealing with Uncertainty’
- And many more
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) is a two-day, internationally recognised, practical skills and awareness course, designed to give participants:
- A deeper understanding of mental health and the factors that can affect people’s wellbeing, including your own.
- Practical skills to spot the triggers and signs of mental health issues.
- Confidence to step in, reassure and support a person in distress.
- Enhanced interpersonal skills such as non-judgemental listening.
- Knowledge to help someone recover their health by guiding them to appropriate support.
Tailored Mindfulness training as well as an 8-week structured programme can be provided.
A previous study regarding the effects of an 8-week mindfulness programme on a group of employees described the changes as “profound”. The employees became happier, less anxious, more energised and increasingly engaged with their work. Their immune systems were also found to be “significantly stronger”.
During the programme, team members have the opportunity to share challenges and experiences. Progress can also be tracked and, on completion of the programme, each participant has a toolkit to support them in dealing with challenges, minimising their stress, prioritising their wellbeing and maintaining their resilience for life!
The positive effects can therefore be transformational and be effective over the longer term.
