Mental illness affects more people every year than cancer or heart disease. It is estimated that 12% of all sick days can be attributed to mental health problems – this is the single biggest cause of lost days at work in the UK. Together, we can start the conversation about mental illness and ensure that people have access to the right support and help when they need it.
Whatever size your business, by working with us, your staff and customers can raise awareness of mental health issues and raise vital funds for our services and support groups through staff engagement and fundraising activities. Through our role in Mental Health UK we also support large scale UK-wide partnerships.
This section includes information on major corporate partners such as:
- Lloyds Banking Group
- Pizza Hut Restaurants
- Virgin Trains
- Branston Potatoes
- Ninja Theory
We are also one of the two organisations who run the Time To Change anti-stigma campaign. Ford launched a new initiative to support this work in April 2018.
In addition to fundraising and awareness activities for corporate partners, we also offer:
- Training in Mental Health First Aid
- Mental health awareness courses for managers
- Training on Mindfulness and resilience in the workplace
- Comprehensive e-learning packages
- Q&A events about living with mental illness
