2019 has been as busy as ever for Step One Charity, and as we head towards the end of the year we are excited to launch our “Thriving Workplace” project.

 

As a leading regional charity promoting Mental Health and Wellbeing we are now looking to help employers create a positive culture within workplaces where we can all talk freely about mental health and seek support when we need it.

 

Did you know?


- Approximately 15.4million working days were lost in 2017/2018 due to work related stress, depression and anxiety (Health and Safety Executive 2018).  Many professionals are, in the words of the 2017 Stevenson Farmer Review of mental health and employers, ‘surviving not thriving’.

 

The most recent ‘Mental Health at Work 2019 Report’ suggests that progress is being made to improve mental health in the workplace, with evidence of increased awareness and positive action – key findings include:

  • Two in five (39%) of UK workers report experiencing poor mental health symptoms related to work in the last year.   
  • More than six in ten (62%) managers said that they have had to put organisational interests above staff wellbeing.  
  • 52% of those who experience mental health problems related to work say this is due to pressure such as too many priorities or targets.  

The Thriving Workplace project aims to equip people with the skills they need to support their own and others’ wellbeing at work.  For organisations considering training staff in Mental Health Awareness, or appointing qualified Mental Health First Aid ‘champions’, Step One can help. We now offer a range of courses and activities to suit time constraints and different requirements. With 80 years’ experience delivering mental health and employability services, and trainers who have lived experience of poor mental health -  our training provides people with the confidence to support a positive change in the workplace environment.

 

Support through external donations and contributions helps maintain a number of free places and free activities for those who need it most, and ensures that we can continue to provide the best possible care through our other services where people are in need of more intensive support.
