Enable your managers to manage mental health with confidence

Poor mental health costs employers up to £45 billion each year. But for every £1 spent on mental health interventions, they get back £5 in reduced absence, presenteeism and staff turnover (Deloitte,2020).

AdviserPlus Learning Solutions supports organisations to manage health and wellbeing proactively, minimise the risk of mental ill health on your business and your people, and help to promote and maintain healthy workplaces.

We will work with you to deliver training that  complements and enhances your existing wellbeing strategy or can help you create one if you don’t have one.

Each organisation’s culture is unique and creating change around mental health is a complex task that requires a multi-tiered approach, which our team of experts is positioned to provide.

All of our course facilitators are mental health first aid instructors, accredited by MHFA England.

Mental Health Awareness

Poor mental health is now the primary reason for staff absence. Mental health awareness training from AdviserPlus Learning Solutions offers a cost-effective way to promote mental wellbeing in your organisation and at home.

The outcome is reduced sickness absence in your business and a healthier, more productive workforce. Unfortunately, mental health issues still attract stigma and this can prevent organisations from giving team members the right support.

  • How to have sensitive conversations, building confidence and improving your core behaviour and knowledge around mental health
  • How to spot the early signs, symptoms and behaviours of mental health and take the right action
  • Understanding the mental health spectrum, including stress, anxiety and depression
