The Business Case:
Although there are many ‘common sense’ reasons for improving mental health literacy at work, the most recent and comprehensive report outlines the business case for doing this. The Stevenson-Farmer Review highlighted that:

  • Mental Health is still the primary reason for absence but presenteeism is costing employers more, year on year.
  • The cost of poor mental health at work costs employers the equivalent of between £1205 and £1560 per employee each year.
  • This cost is higher in Finance, Insurance, Real Estate and Professional Services – up to £2564 per employee.
  • Poor mental health at work costs the UK Economy between £74 and £99 billion each year.
  • Over half of employees said they would not discuss mental health with their manager.

There is hope:

  • The return on investment of workplace mental health interventions averages £4.20 for every £1 spent.
  • The return on investment of providing suitable training could be as high as £9.98 for every £1 spent.
  • Most of the larger UK employers are now implementing pro-active mental health and well-being strategies, including comprehensive training programmes.

Recommendations:

  • Produce, implement and communicate a mental health at work plan.
  • Develop mental health awareness among employees.
  • Encourage open conversations about mental health and the support available when employees are struggling.
  • Provide your employees with good working conditions.
  • Promote effective people management.
  • Routinely monitor employee mental health and wellbeing.

MMH will work with you to provide training compatible with these strategies and plans.
