Why Invest in Mental Health First Aid and Awareness and Support?

If you need to justify the reason to invest in mental health training, consider the following:

1 in 4 adults experience mental health issues each year

1 in 6 workers will experience depression, anxiety or problems relating to stress at any one time

72 million working days are lost every year, costing the UK economy £74-£99 billion

61% of UK employees have experienced a mental health issue due to work or where work was a contributing factor

Presenteeism accounts for 2 times more losses than absences

The average cost of mental health to employers equates to £1,300 per employee

1 in 5 people take a day off due to stress. Yet, 90% of these people cited a different reason for sickness
