Mental health support… for a more resilient and engaged workforce

Mental Health education and resilience training can reduce mental health-related absence and presenteeism; increase productivity and morale; and create a more resilient and engaged workforce.

A major contributor to the increased levels of absence in the UK is the rise in mental health issues, which have
increased by 71.9% since 2011. Reports show that mental health issues hit 30-40 year olds hardest – a result of
increased financial pressures and a difficulty balancing the demands of work and family. This is evidenced by
the seasonality of mental health issues, which increase during the summer and Christmas holidays.

Main factors cited as causing work-related stress,
anxiety and depression are:

  • Workload pressures
  • Tight deadlines
  • Lack of managerial support/management style
  • Poor relationships and conflict at work
  • Non-work relationships/family

Mental health support options include:

With a deeper understanding of your organisational culture, working practices and mental health challenges, we can provide bespoke mental health education and resilience training solutions, with the focus being a reduction in mental health-related absence and presenteeism, increased productivity, improved morale, and a more resilient and engaged workforce.

How much is poor mental health costing your business?

According to the Mental Health Foundation, 12.7% of all UK sick days can be attributed to poor mental health, and better mental health support in workplaces could save UK businesses £8billion per year.

Can you put a figure on the following in your business:

  • Absenteeism
  • Presenteeism
  • Staff turnover

Whether it be the cost and disruption associated with employees taking time off; those that turn up
and underperform; or employees that leave your business… the costs can soon grow. Clearly our current national approach to managing poor mental health isn’t working. More and more of us are struggling, with the trend clearly rising upwards.

A different approach

At Celebrate Health & Fitness we take a different approach to improving the mental wellbeing of your employees. Our methods place the power in the hands of the individual so that they can improve their own personal resilience.

  • Biological – genes, lifestyle, environment
  • Psychological – thinking style, personality, coping mechanisms
  • Sociological – life events, society

One of the main reasons many employees suffer from poor health is due to not knowing how to positively influence their health and lifestyle.

We believe that empowering employees at all levels with the knowledge to influence their own health and wellbeing is key to building health resilience. By helping individuals change their physical, mental and lifestyle habits they can begin to develop a personal resilience toolkit for life that gives them more control of their health.

We educate individuals across the spectrum of mental wellbeing issues that cause staff to underperform, take time off sick, or even leave the company.

Our training combines techniques from Mindfulness, Cognitive behavioural therapy, meditation, NLP, positive psychology, fitness, nutritional therapy, and healthy lifestyle coaching to create unique offerings.

By working closely with you to gain a deeper understanding of your organisational culture and set of working practices we can create bespoke mental health education and mental resilience training solutions to your mental health challenges, with the result being a reduction in mental health-related absence, presenteeism, increased productivity, increased morale, and a more resilient and engaged workforce.

Mental Wellbeing Drop-in Clinics

To support our mental health training we also offer half and full day drop-in clinics should your employees need further support. The aim of our drop-in clinics is to work on a preventative basis, assisting employees before their molehills become mountains. Objectivity as a coach external to the business, allows the individual to speak freely. Face-to-face contact is the most effective for this type of intervention, as the relationship is crucial for this to be successful

  • 30 minute slots
  • Face to face (not via phone unless it’s the only option)
  • On-site (we usually book a meeting room for the day)
    The training modules ‘De-stress Behind the Wheel’ and ‘Sleep’ were very engaging, interesting and useful, giving myself and my drivers lots of tips and advice on how to manage personal stress levels in various life and workplace circumstances, and how to review your approach to your sleeping habits in order to promote better, higher quality sleep, improve personal health and work performance. I thoroughly recommend this training as an essential part of a company’s responsibility towards its ongoing driver wellbeing.

    During the first part of Jonathan’s session it dawned on me that I couldn’t remember the last time I was able to sit still and remain focused on ‘being present’. The coaching was thought-provoking and provided simple techniques to relieve tension and manage stress on a day-to-day basis.

    Jonathan’s ‘Resilience and Wellbeing Advice Clinic’ gave my employees practical tools to help them deal with the varying individual challenges that they face. They were really impressed by the amount of value they got in such a short space of time at the sessions.

    Trickle down effect

    We install our interventions into the leadership programmes of our clients so that mental health becomes business as usual, and something that is understood at all levels of the business.

    Working with your line managers we create a trickle down effect on their teams. By helping line managers, in the first instance, to manage their own mental wellbeing, we create the psychological space for them to be able to observe and understand any problems that may be having an adverse effect on team members’ mental health.

    Armed with knowledge and training, your managers and leaders can be confident in their ability to take cases of poor mental health in their stride, supporting their team members to bring them back up and running.

    Our approach works on a preventative basis. Rather than waiting for molehills to become mountains, we teach managers how to act early.
