Research by the mental health charity MIND indicates that a culture of fear and silence around mental health is costly to employers. With more than one in five working adults experiencing difficulties caused by their mental health in any given year, every organization is likely to be affected. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) indicate that in a company of 1000 employees, mental ill-health loses an organisation £835,000 per year. A saving of £250,000 ( 30%) per year could be made if prevention or early identification of problems were tackled. Compared to savings on tackling obesity or smoking in the workplace where companies could save £126,000 and £128,000 respectively it is clear that tackling mental fitness needs to be regarded as being at least of equal importance.
The aim of Mindshift is to make a measurable contribution to the creation of an open mental- wellbeing culture in any organisation irrespective of industry. This is achieved by training that can lead to the early intervention of mental wellbeing issues in staff, which in turn contributes to their continued attendance and performance. The training focuses on raising awareness and understanding around mental health and so reduces the stigma that surrounds this topic. The interactive workshops provide practical guidance and facilitates the creation of a "tool-kit" that can be used to better manage mental fitness in your workplace.
A wider understanding and a reduction in stigma leads to a more open business culture where employees can be comfortable in seeking help and where the workforce is better able to support those needing help.
Sickness absence management is also offered via telephone or face to face.
Mindshift has experience across many business types including corporate, healthcare, construction, IT, humanitarian, education and charity sectors.
