Mindful Employer Update

By Mark Poole, Lead for Mindful Employer

At its most basic level, work provides us with a source of income, but it also provides us with so much more; the chance to meet people and make friends, a sense of accomplishment or purpose, even a sense of belonging or identity.

However, in spite of these benefits, with one in four of us likely to experience a mental health problem each year, poor mental health has fast become one of the biggest problems facing the workplace today – Did you know that less than half of employees feel able to talk openly about stress with a manager? Or that the number of absences caused by depression and anxiety has increased by 24% over the last seven years? At Mindful Employer, we strive to help you as employers to overcome these challenges. Last year alone we trained an additional 1,800 members of staff on mental health, and welcomed more than 250 new employers as charter signatories.

Upcoming Awareness Workshops

Each year, Mindful Employer hosts a series of open-house workshops designed to raise awareness of Mental Health in the Workplace. Open for anyone to book in, these workshops provide you with the opportunity to learn more about the possible impact of different mental health conditions on work, including how we might support our own, or a colleague’s mental wellbeing.
