Far more workers have time off due to mental health (MH) problems at work than ever do due to accidents, injuries and illnesses. That’s why businesses are now looking to train some of their team to look out for signs of any potential issues at work.

​Thankfully, people are starting to be a lot more open about mental ill health, which is important as 1 in 4 of us will have a mental illness each year. The cost to employees and businesses can be huge with 70 million work days lost each year costing UK businesses a staggering £70 billion each year.

With such a massive the impact, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recently updated its advice and placed importance of not only providing risk assessment for physical health but also for mental health. Its advice includes how to support employees with stress and depression and also includes training staff as mental health first aiders.
