Mental Health Awareness

Introduction

With 1 in 4 adults diagnosed with a form of mental illness at some stage in their life₁ and the cost to businesses reaching £1,716 per employee per year₂, many employers are prioritising the well-being of their people.
 
The Coronavirus pandemic is having a huge effect on our mental health with nearly two thirds of people across England saying that their mental health has become worse during lockdown₃, but around one third did not seek help as they thought their problem wasn’t serious enough.
