Lord Denison’s independent review of mental health in the workplace found that investment in an effective mental health workplace strategy is actually good for business, reducing costs, lost workdays and accidents and promotes increased productivity and morale.

Evidence suggests that 12.7% of absence can be contributed to mental health conditions. In 2017/18 the Health and Safety Executive released their annual stats showing 15.4 million lost workdays through work related mental health. On average for each person suffering took 19.8 days off.

By not addressing mental health in the workplace, companies are suffering detrimental losses with mental health issues costing employers around 3innovative5 billion every year. According to the Centre for Mental Health 21.2bn is in reduced productivity, 10.6bn in sickness absence and 3.1 in staff turnover. However, it is impossible to determine the exact statistics as many mental health issues go unreported.

The Health and Safety Executive also estimate that 20% of all accidents occur due to some form of mental health issue, such as stress, anxiety or mental fatigue. The impacts of these can be significant on health, reputation and financial cost.
