SMEs Offering Mental Health Services for Businesses

See how 8 mental wellbeing businesses are helping to boost productivity and wellbeing across Europe.

 

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), an estimated 12 billion working days are lost every year to depression and anxiety worldwide, at a cost of US$ 1 trillion per year in lost productivity. Statistics about mental health in the workplace reveal that it's an issue affecting people from all walks of life. So, in this article for Mental Health Awareness Month, we're going to highlight a group of companies across Europe that provide mental health support for businesses.

 
How to talk about mental health at work

Addressing and caring for your employees’ mental health, and not shying away from it shows everyone on your team that they have support if they need it. Speak in person with your team about your mental health policy – don't just talk about it over email or in documents – as this feels impersonal.
