CREWKERNE, U.K. - Oct. 30, 2019 - PRLog -- In recent years, our general understanding of mental health issues as a public has improved given the much greater media coverage and attention given to this subject area. Much more though can still be done and this includes in the workplace.

The interesting point for business owners and human resources departments, is that there are multiple benefits to providing basic and short workshops on mental health awareness for your employees.

Firstly, you have a duty of care to employees regards their well-being. As a caring and good employer, no doubt you will care about the welfare of your staff and want them to work in a positive and caring safe environment.

As a employer or HR department though, offering mental health awareness training has a very powerful benefit directly for the company itself. Staff who feel treated well and who feel that their needs are catered for, have been shown in previous studies to be extremely loyal as employees. Those who do suffer from mental issues, benefit when their colleagues have a greater understanding of how they suffer and how to identify warning signs of issues.

Providing a supportive, caring, unified and positive workplace and workforce, tends to mean much greater productivity and it is far easier to maintain staff. If only to save significant income on having to re-hire staff who otherwise leave, the benefits of providing workshops for staff on mental health awareness simply makes sense.

The mental health workshop package, designed by Dr Valeria Lo Iacono of Symonds Training and research includes:

• Understanding the basics of mental health and the truth behind many misconceptions.
• How to identity signs of mental health issues in others and how to act.
• Discussion surrounding why mental health awareness is important and its role in the workforce.
• Strategies for supporting mental health in the workplace.
