1 in 6 British workers are affected by conditions like anxiety, depression and stress every year. This will be having a significant effect on your workplace and employees, but it can be improved.
But it’s a myth to think people with mental health problems can’t work.
It is vital to understand that they can and do work, and with the right knowledge and skills you can support your employees to stay well; saving you money and maintaining your productivity.
