It is estimated that 1 in 4 adults will experience a mental health problem in any given year, and certain sectors, including health and care, report significantly higher levels of work-related stress, anxiety and depression. It is therefore becoming increasingly important for all workers to have an awareness of mental health issues and workplace stress, and to understand how to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
For those working in health and social care, it is equally important to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively support someone else who is experiencing a mental health problem.
