We’ve all heard the stats… Each year 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health issues.
- Time off work cost the UK economy £18 Billion per annum.
- Mental Health problems account for the loss of 91 Million working days
- 1 in 6 workers are dealing with a mental health problem
Depression, anxiety, stress, and OCD to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and panic disorder…the list goes on.
Employers can help staff manage their mental health in the workplace for example by ensuring regular breaks, introducing leisure activities and thanking the staff.
At Oakleaf, we strive to tackle this issue.
We work to reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues and we encourage people to talk about their own mental health, share their stories and talk openly about their experiences.
