Right now, at least 1 in 6 workers are experiencing stress, anxiety and depression, which means supporting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace is everyone's business. No matter your organisation's size, there are steps you can take to improve wellbeing in your workplace.
As a local, Lancashire based organisation, Lancashire Mind can relate to your business and workforce, plus we benefit from our close working relationship with national mental health charity, Mind, who have a team dedicated to developing workplace wellbeing.
Our workplace interventions are evidence based and are delivered by experienced and passionate trainers and coaches. They will work with you to improve wellbeing in the workplace to help your business thrive.
The cost to UK employers of poor mental health in the workplace is between £42 - £45 billion each year (Mental health and employers: Refreshing the case for investment, Deloitte, January 2020). The largest contributor to these costs is presenteeism, people attending work whilst ill and therefore not performing at their full ability.
You can reduce these costs for your business, increase productivity and reduce staff turnover by working with Lancashire Mind to equip your managers and wider staff team with increased awareness of mental health and the tools you need to not only prevent poor mental health but to provide people with a workplace that contributes positively to their mental health.

'Furlough', 'Working from Home', 'Frontline Workers' and 'Redundancies'. These are words which have popped up more and more often since March when the country experienced a full lock-down due to COVID-19. Every single person in the UK has been affected by the pandemic in some way and it's not surprising to see mental health being affected, both inside and outside of the workplace.
Here at Lancashire Mind, we are passionate about workplace wellbeing and we know how important it is to support everyone at work, no matter how the pandemic has altered our way of life. We've created two resource packs for Lancashire businesses - one for employers and one for employees - both contain lots of information, tips and tools for supporting mental health and wellbeing at work.
