Explore the University of Exeter’s approach to mental health in the workplace.

Mental health problems are a huge issue affecting people and business. Statistics tell us that 1 in 4 people will be affected by a mental health problem at some time in their life with the result that 72 million working days are lost each year, at a cost of around £3.4.9bn to UK employers alone.

These figures only paint part of the picture, and recent research has also shown that employees are likely to give different reasons for taking sick leave because of poor mental health. While there is undoubtedly a myriad of factors contributing to individual mental health, the workplace has huge potential either to promote or to undermine mental wellbeing.

Join us to discover the pathway to healthier and more productive workplaces.
