Mental health in the workplace

Mental health in the workplace

Categories: Latest news , Practice Solutions

Today is Time to Talk Day and with our busy schedules and 1 in 4 people experiencing a mental health problem in any given year, it is more important than ever to speak out about mental health at home, at school and at work too!

Recent stats show that poor management style is 1 of the top 3 causes for work-related stress and mental health costs the UK economy £100 billion each year against a total NHS budget of £115 billion.

People are organisations’ greatest asset and staff’s well-being and performance is crucial to an employer’s success. A happy and healthy workforce ensures an organisation is sustainable, delivers results and contributes to the well-being of the community and the wider society.

As a result, Venture Wales, Valley Steps and Practice Solutions have been working together to think creatively about how we can help organisations within our local community to embrace these challenges.

We have some ideas that we would like to explore and therefore, we’re inviting all local businesses to a FREE lunchtime networking event in March so watch out this space. More details about the event and how to book a space to come very soon. We look forward to meeting with you all.
