how we can help...
Alongside our puppy therapy events, we also offer mental health training through a range of MHFA England accredited courses. According to CV-Library, 89% of workers with mental health problems experience an impact on their working life. Adequate training and education are the first steps in being able to provide support networks for employees in need, whilst also giving tools which enable staff to manage their own mental health.
Reports have found that mental health struggles for employees can cost UK employers up to £45bn a year in sickness absence, presenteeism, staff turnover, and the wider impact on the office. However, through investing in the wellbeing of staff, employers have seen an average return of £4.20 for every £1 spent on mental health initiatives, according to Thriving at Work.
