Mental health & wellbeing

Despite great strides in recent years towards awareness raising and improved understanding of mental ill-health, there is still huge stigma. This continues to prevent early recognition and treatment of many common mental health issues, and regularly stops people asking for help. 

  • In the UK, 1 in 4 people has a diagnosable mental health issue
  • Only 24% of those affected get any kind of help.
  • 1 in 10 children has a mental health concern
  • Estimated cost to businesses in lost work days and revenues is around £1,000 per employee
  • Overall cost the UK is estimated at close to £70bn
  • Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK, and the second-largest killer of young people between 14 and 29 globally

Breaking down the stigma within your organisation is a key step in improving employee wellbeing, and positively impacting the culture and performance of your firm. 

The Mind Bee offers talks and training for senior leaders, focused on the science. We provide experienced insight and pragmatic steps which can be taken to address this daunting issue. Delivered with candour and humour, sessions are interactive and memorable.
