About this talk

It is projected that by 2030, Mental Health (MH) problems will be the leading cause of mortality and morbidity globally. Each year approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a MH condition and at least 1 in 6 employees experience common MH problems in the workplace. Research has shown that work is the biggest cause of stress which can stop people performing at their best. Almost a third (32%) of adults say they have suffered from MH problems in their workplace, 49% do not feel there is an appropriate culture in their workplace to enable people to open up about their mental wellbeing. More than half, 54% said they were not aware what MH support was available at their workplace (World Economic Forum 2019). MH conditions are often hidden due to stigma and fear of discrimination, and research has shown that a culture of fear and silence around MH is costly to employers. This was all before the recent effects of COVID19... In this short presentation, Paul will raise your awareness to the importance of creating a positive MH culture in the current climate and the benefits individually and to organisations, improving performance and productivity. He will briefly focus in on Stress and Anxiety as two of the major areas which have been exacerbated due to technological advances and COVID, with some ways that we are able to manage this. Because it's what's below the iceberg that matters...
