Mental health affects 1 in 4 people every year, costing businesses up to £48 billion pounds annually, through absenteeism, presenteeism and attrition. Over 300,000 people find themselves out of work every year due to long term mental illnesses – which is significantly higher than those who have physical conditions.

o Where it fits in the organisation - rules, regulations, processes, and policies
- An overview of spotting the signs and understanding the symptoms
- Mental Health starts with you
- Knowing what to say – engaging with your employees
