Our research shows that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers.  Poor mental health costs employers between 33 billion and 42 billion a year.    Mixed anxiety and depression has been estimated to cause one fifth of days lost from work in Britain.  One in five people feel they cannot tell their boss if they were overly stressed at work.

Right now 1 in 6 workers is dealing with a mental health problem such as anxiety, depression or stress. This can stop people performing at their best.

At Mind in Harrow, our Head for Work Project deliver specialist, tailored mental health awareness training, which is employer focused.  Organisations can choose the date and location for training and we provide User led Trainers who are accredited by Middlesex University.

Quotes from participants

The trainers interacted brilliantly and it was really sensitively presented.  The personal testimony was very powerful to exemplify issues.

Mental Health Awareness Training

I feel more educated about mental health, not just for employees, but also for myself.

Managing Mental Health in the Workplace Training

It was so useful to be able to open up and others feeling confident to do the same.  I enjoyed the understanding and energy from the tutors.  It feels as if I am now better able to understand mental health and mental health issues.
