Why you should care about your employee’s mental health and what you can do to improve it

The problem

It’s so encouraging the way mental health is now being taken more seriously in society and in the workplace. Businesses providing support to their staff with well-being isn’t just the right thing to do but it also makes business sense. 27 days of productive time per employee are lost each year due to presenteeism and on average, presenteeism costs businesses £605 per person each year. 1 in 7 of your employees experience mental health problems at work with 12.7% of all sickness absence days attributed to mental health.

Employees are increasingly seeking companies who will take care of their well-being and mental health. If people are struggling to be motivated, positive and communicative, whether because of illness, fatigue or stress, then it makes it hard to maintain relationships, and the overall atmosphere of the workplace is likely to take a hit. Offering a workshop on how to manage stress will not only benefit them but is a great offering for prospective employees.

So…what can you do?

People need to be educated on what makes them live well, or ‘lifestyle medicine’. Thera-sea offers wellness workshops to share knowledge of lifestyle medicine, equipping people with the tools they need to manage stress and apply these learnings to their daily lives.

The workshops are all run with Thera-Sea founder and mental health clinician, Katy Griffin. Katy has 12 years of experience as a clinical specialist and is qualified stress management consultant.
