Prioritising People: How Our Government Is Pushing for Workplace Mental Well-being

Mental health in the workplace is no longer a back-burner issue. With statistics showing a significant impact on employee well-being and economic productivity, our government is placing a growing focus on how corporations can actively ensure a positive mental health environment.

Here’s a closer look at what our government is expecting from companies:

  • Proactive Measures: Our government is looking beyond simply offering mental health days when employees are already struggling. They expect companies to implement preventative measures that foster a healthy work culture. This could include flexible work arrangements, clear communication channels, and workload management strategies to minimize stress.
  • Leadership by Example: Strong leadership sets the tone. Our government is encouraging senior management to champion mental health initiatives. This could involve openly discussing mental health, participating in training programs, and creating a work environment where employees feel comfortable seeking help.
  • Accessibility of Resources: Providing access to mental health resources is crucial. Our government is urging companies to offer Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) or partner with mental health professionals to offer confidential support services.
  • Training and Awareness: Equipping managers and employees with the knowledge to identify and address mental health concerns is essential. Our government is advocating for training programs that teach managers how to have sensitive conversations about mental health and how to recognise signs of stress or burnout in their teams.

The Numbers Speak Volumes:

The business case for prioritising mental well-being is undeniable.

  • A study by the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that depression and anxiety disorders cost the global economy $1 trillion per year in lost productivity.

UK-Specific Statistics:

To understand the impact on the UK workforce, let’s turn to some statistics from prominent UK think tanks:

  • The Centre for Mental Health ( highlights that one in six people in the UK experience a mental health issue in any given week, with a significant impact on presenteeism (being at work but unproductive due to mental health issues).
  • The Resolution Foundation (, focusing on low- and middle-income families, points out that these groups are disproportionately affected by mental health problems, further impacting the economy.

Policy and Guidance:

Our government can look to UK think tanks for guidance on implementing effective mental health policies in the workplace. Here are some examples:

  • The Institute for Fiscal Studies ( could offer insights on the economic benefits of investing in workplace mental health initiatives.
  • The King’s Fund (, specialising in health, could provide guidance on integrating mental health support into existing occupational health services.

By working alongside these UK think tanks, our government can develop comprehensive and effective policies that encourage businesses to prioritize employee mental well-being.

The Road Ahead

While there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, our government is taking various initiatives to support businesses. These could include developing national “health at work” standards, offering guidance on implementing mental health programmes, and providing resources for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Ultimately, the goal is to create a work environment where employees feel valued, supported, and empowered to prioritise their mental well-being. This not only benefits individual employees, but also creates a healthier, more productive workforce and a stronger national economy.

Social Impact

Empowering Businesses, Empowering Communities: The Impact Mental Well-being Cycle

Impact Mental Health’s mission goes beyond individual well-being. By offering mental well-being courses, training, and support services to companies, we create a positive ripple effect. Here’s how:

  • Improved Workplace Well-being: Our programmes equip employees with tools to manage stress, build resilience, and foster a supportive work environment. This leads to a happier, healthier workforce.
  • Enhanced Productivity: When employees prioritise their mental well-being, they experience increased focus, better decision-making, and reduced absenteeism. This translates to greater productivity and success for the company.
  • Sustainable Investment: By investing in employee well-being, companies demonstrate their commitment to a positive work culture. This attracts and retains top talent, creating a long-term competitive advantage.

This positive impact on businesses allows Impact Mental Health to offer free courses to the community. The revenue generated by corporate services gets reinvested in creating accessible resources and fostering peer support groups. This empowers individuals to take charge of their mental well-being, building a stronger and more resilient community.

In essence, Impact Mental Health creates a virtuous cycle: Businesses thrive with a healthier workforce, which fuels our ability to offer free support to the community, ultimately fostering a culture of mental well-being for all.

What our customers say…

Mental Health Peer Support

A well-structured course, delivered in a professional but relaxed manner by a team of very capable trainers. A good level of communication maintained throughout. Potentially, the course could be extended. I plan to recommend the training to other military personnel.

Mental Health Peer Support

We were delighted to have Impact join us again at our staff conference this year.  Carol and Deanne held lively and open discussions about mental health and shared their personal experiences.  The discussions around peer support helped staff recognise potential mental distress in themselves and in others.  All three sessions were fully booked and received very positive feedback from staff from across all areas of the college.   We look forward to working with Impact again.

Mental Health Peer Support

I must write to say a huge “thank you” for the ‘learning’ your team have provided during the past 3 weeks. We were quietly elated from the inception of Deanne’s attending the All Staff meeting here at the CCG and providing us all with a breath of fresh air in her approach to dealing with Mental Health matters. Her open, frank and honest discussion was greatly appreciated, as was her raising awareness of the many facets of mental health and the stigma that is “still” attached to it.

Please note there will be no Feel Good Friday session this week due to circumstances beyond our control. We'll be back again next month. Have a good weekend.
