Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest cause of sickness absence in our society. Mental ill health is responsible for 91 million working days lost every year.
We have been working with Mental Health First Aid England to provide mental health courses which will help raise awareness of mental illness, enabling people to support themselves and others to aid recovery. The courses aim to reduce stigma through education and increase understanding, alongside providing relevant signposting support.
