The Good News
Analysis from ‘Mental health and employers: the case for refreshing investment’ also looks at how employers can tackle this problem. It shows that higher return on investment can be achieved by early interventions, such as organisation-wide culture change and education, than more in-depth support that may be needed at a later stage when a person is struggling.
For every £1 spent by employers on mental health interventions they get £5 back in reduced absence, presenteeism and staff turnover.
What you need to know
But there is a way forward. Here at the Hummingbird Project, we use our lived experience (LEx) alongside our learned and practiced training. The use of LEx directly cuts through the stigma associated with mental health and connects authentically with participants.
Our clients tell us that it is this approach combined with our unique 3U-Model© that makes the difference. Whether we are working to deliver a resilience course to a group of construction workers or 1-2-1 support to a burnt out executive, we create real change in the lives of our participants.
