Derby University Presents:
The Mental Health & Productivity Pilot
Businesses across the Midlands are being offered the chance to boost productivity by working with the University of Derby to provide better mental health support for employees.
The University of Derby is now offering businesses of all sizes and from all sectors in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Stoke and Staffordshire, Shrewsbury and Shropshire, and Herefordshire the opportunity to work with them integrate effective mental health provision into their organisation.
The Mental Health and Productivity Pilot will see the implementation of new workplace interventions at pilot organisations and the rollout of existing approaches in small, medium and large businesses across the Midlands Engine region.
The programme aims to:
● contribute to the reduction of mental health distress
● break down the barriers to accessing care faced by people experiencing mental illness
● support their continuation in and return to work
● make a positive contribution to organisational productivity, in terms of wellbeing and economic outcomes.
This webinar will provide you with an overview of the pilot and explore how the programme may benefit your organisation.
