‘How Can We Get Better at Supporting Mental Health in the Workplace?’

With 77% of all adults now saying they experienced poor mental health at some point in their life, the UK economy lost £35 billion due to mental ill health last year, £10 billion of this was specifically due to sickness absence.

Employing a mental health care strategy to support your team has been proven to deliver a 30% reduction in sickness days (source MHFA England 2018).

In fact, we are so passionate about the implications of trained Mental Health First Aiders

in organisations that we supported the brilliant Where’s Your Head At campaign by going to Parliament to celebrate the petition being presented to the Prime Minister.

This petition intends to make it a legal obligation to have trained Mental Health First Aiders in all organisations, universities and colleges.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Training

PUSH have formed a partnership with the MHFA England

To deliver their globally recognised training. The course is designed to teach people how to spot the signs and symptoms of mental ill health. In the same way as learning physical first aid, MHFA teaches people how to recognise those crucial warning signs of mental ill health and feel confident to guide someone to appropriate support. PUSH will bring these sessions into your office where they will be delivered, by a mix of group activities, presentation and discussion.

We have handpicked a selection of the very best MHFA trainers who are highly engaging and experienced working with corporations.

’Starting the Conversation On…Mental Health in the Workplace and Building Resilience in Teams’

PUSH Hosted Our First ‘Starting The Conversation’ Event On Supporting Mental Health In The Workplace.

We brought in four of our fantastic coaches to cover the very real topics that lie at the heart of workplace mental health. Discussions around fuelling yourself with smart nutrition, building open-minded cultures that create safe spaces to discuss anxiety and depression, team resilience for handling change and understanding your inner Chimp to better know yourself created a buzz around the 100 strong crowd at The Century Club. It was clear from the audience response that talking about mental health is crucial for organisations, and this conversation was only the beginning of a huge push in implementing strategies to manage employee mental wellbeing.
