About the course
Around 450 million people currently experience mental health problems. Recent reports suggest that over 12 million working days were lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in just one year.
It's important for employers to be transparent and open about mental health issues. Increasing the understanding of mental health among staff at all levels builds a culture of care and support.
