Mental health awareness for a worldwide workforce

We want to smash the stigma around anxiety, depression, stress and other common conditions. Our ambition is to make it easier for employees worldwide to care for their mental wellbeing, and their colleagues’ too.

In collaboration with MAD and with input from familiar faces from athletes to supermodels, we have created a four-part digital learning programme that looks at key aspects of mental wellbeing.

Packed with practical tips, reflective questions and calls to action, this programme highlights the key symptoms of common mental health conditions and how to spot early warning signs in yourself and others. It helps employees build personal resilience and to learn how to bounce back - or even forwards - from challenges and setbacks.

  • Resilience

    This considers what mental health looks like and how we can become better able to deal with stress and other challenges. Help your employees become mental health aware and understand why they feel the way they do.
  • Empathy

    This focuses on recognising the warning signs when someone is struggling and on being a better listener. Help your employees learn how to help those around them, in the workplace and at home.
  • Self-care

    This deals with the importance of a healthy body and lifestyle in maintaining a healthy mind. Help your employees find balance in their lives and be compassionate to themselves.
  • Engagement

    This addresses how best to build a more supportive, caring environment at work for all employees. Help your employees understand what they can and can’t control at work and how that can affect their mental health.

How to help every employee nurture their mental health

Mental wellbeing is transformative, both for individuals and businesses. It contributes to a positive workplace culture, helps build your reputation as a responsible employer and ensures that employees feel cared for and supported. Give your people the tools they need to nurture their mental health, and your business can only be stronger for it.
