★ Special event:

How to Change the Culture of Mental Health in the Workplace

St Mary's Stadium, Southampton  •  Tue, 4 June  •  8–10.30am

Main speaker Peter Larkum. Featuring guest speaker Dafydd James (former international rugby player).

This event is designed especially for business owners and senior management who want to create a workplace culture that leads to emotional resiliency, retention of talent, and the healthier wellbeing of friends and colleagues around us. 

Mental ill health costs UK employers an estimated:

£34.9 billion each year.

That's £34,900,000,000. A lot of zeros. Broken down…

  • £10.6 billion in sickness absence.
  • £21.2 billion in reduced productivity.
  • £3.1 billion in replacing staff who leave their jobs for mental health-related reasons.

Simple steps to improve the management of mental health in the workplace will allow employers to save 30% or more of these costs, adding up to £10 billion a year.

That's saving £1,500 per person per year.
This is where we can help.
