Join Business in the Community and the Public Health team from Hertfordshire to share best practice to support your business in gaining a better understanding of mental ill-health.

Is mental well-being on an equal footing with physical health in your workplace? Did you know? 

The total cost of mental health problems in workplaces is estimated at nearly £26 billion each year, the equivalent to £1,035 for every employee in the UK workforce.

Join us to find out how forward thinking businesses can get the tools to address this key issue in workplaces. Hear from: 

  • Dacorum Borough Council who will share their business case study on how they are building an internal network of Mental Health First Aiders (MHFA) and its impact on the workplace

  • Jo Dray, Mental Health First Aid Practitioner, will lead a peer learning session based on your feedback to support the launch of a mental well-being network for the 600 trained MHFA lite employees in Hertfordshire

  • Understand better the ‘time to change’ campaign and new resources developed by BITC’s(Business in the Community) national Wellbeing at Work campaign
