Leeds Mind, Sky Betting and Gaming, The Works Recruitment and Confident Club

According to a recent survey of 44,000 people carried out by the mental health charity Mind, poor mental health affects half of all employees - that’s around 700,000 workers in our region alone. Mental health in the workplace is a national concern. New figures from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), for example, reveal that work-related stress, anxiety or depression now account for over half of all sickness absence in the UK for the first time ever.

Bearing this in mind, it is now crucial that business leaders in Leeds and Yorkshire develop and implement strategies to ensure that there is a safety net in place to catch workers who may be at risk of becoming unwell. And investing in Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training for employees is a logical first step.

Join the panel in their discussion around the importance of mental health awareness in the workplace and how you and your management teams can support any employees who may be suffering at work. Leeds Mind will also be briefly covering the 10 steps toolkit for well-being in the workplace.

Together we can support our employees and help to end the stigma around mental health discrimination!
