Workplace Stress & Anxiety Workshops
Stress & Anxiety
Stress and Anxiety are at the root of many commonly experienced mental health Issues. In today’s crazy world, we all face more pressure than ever to conform and perform. And that pressure is often turns into stress, which in excessive measures can lead to anxiety and depression developing.
A gap in the road
There are many training providers doing a great job and helping people to recognise mental health issues via mental health training courses. But, sadly, that doesn't provide for specialist, professional help if support from a mental health 1st aider doesn’t do the trick.
A massive hidden cost
The next step is normally to ‘signpost’ the sufferer to a referral to a doctor or mental health team.
That can often result in long term absence from work, leaving the employer with a choice: manage without the employee and absorb the shortfall in capacity among the other local staff; or hire in, at a cost and with the risk of a sometimes undertrained, underperforming replacement.
Worse case, they finally leave their job, and leave the company with the cost of recruiting and training a suitable replacement while managing the lost capacity as best they can.
Multiply that a few times across the company, and you have a real problem.
A better way
So, is there a better way?
Yes, and it’s simple: Educate your workforce about stress and anxiety, and at the same time give them the specific knowledge and tools to deal with stress before it turns into a mental health issue.
In as little as 2 hours we can help your staff to banish stress and anxiety and become more resilient and confident in their abilities and their position
