Supporting your Mental Health & Wellbeing Agenda

While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create challenges for organisations, there is a risk that this single focus is creating a blind spot which could soon lead to mental health and lifestyle disease epidemics.

UNLOCKING THE VALUE OF POSITIVE MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING IN THE WORKPLACE

An increased awareness of how the workplace contributes to mental ill-health has turned Mental Health and Wellbeing Programmes from a nice-to-have to a true business need. Despite understanding the demand for and necessity of these programmes, it is often hard to know where to start. 

Physical and mental ill-health can strike at any time. Addressing issues in the workplace is vital to ensuring employees are present and capable of performing their roles, and to reduce the rising cost of medical expenditure.

Taking a longer-term view, there needs to be a stronger emphasis on the whole person: on an individual's mental and physical wellbeing. This includes the management of lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and cancer. Integrated workplace preventative programmes can really help to build awareness and address the problem.
