What is it?

A service designed for organisations and employees to support anyone experiencing mental health issues in the workplace. Through its delivery of MHFA, bespoke training, direct support, and consultation services its focus is on improving Mental Health support, understanding and awareness in the workplace.

Who is it for?

Courses and workshops from Wellpeople are available to all employers and employees. Stress, anxiety and depression are the biggest causes of sickness absence in our society, and according to a new government-backed report, Thriving at Work, mental health costs employers between £32bn and £43bn a year. For every £1 spent on an employee with Wellpeople services, employers will see a £5 return on investment.

The ‘Thriving at Work’ report demonstrated that whilst 84% of managers feel that employee wellbeing is their responsibility, only 24% had received training in managing an employee with a mental health problems. But, improving the wellbeing and mental health of your team has a positive impact on the company’s performance.

staff who have positive mental health are more productive and businesses who promote a progressive approach to mental health can see a significant impact on business performance.

Dr Justin Varney, National Lead for Adult Health and Wellbeing, Public Health England.

How does it work?

Wellpeople delivers training to organisations, empowering them with skills to look after the mental health and wellbeing of their teams and themselves as individuals. All employers have a responsibility to look after the mental health and wellbeing of their workforce, not only to increase and maintain the productivity of their organisation, but as a platform for stimulating change by challenging stigma and discrimination. This can be achieved through increasing awareness and improving access to mental health support services for their employees.

Wellpeople consultants help organisations build a wellbeing and mental health workplace policy, offering best practice employee wellbeing strategies and HR solutions to support the mental health and wellbeing of their workforce. They provide expert speakers who are able to engage your teams in employee mental health conversations whether it’s at a National Conference or a more focused HR workshop.

Developing a culture in the workplace where employers are seen to look after their employees is essential to creating a reassured workforce and an environment where colleagues understand that they are able to talk about their wellbeing in confidence without being judged.

Richard Grieg, Induction Design Lead, Lloyds Banking Group

An amazing, enlightening and informative course…Mental Health has too long been an issue that has been ignored and de-prioritised. Line managers are often the first line of defence and also the ones best placed to improve the culture of the team.
