Despite mental health care amounting to over £105 billion a year in social and economic cost, only one quarter of people suffering are currently being treated. Whether you know of someone in your organisation displaying abnormal behaviour, it is important to be educated on the symptoms of the more common mental illnesses as; otherwise, a potential issue may go unnoticed
60% of board members believe their organisation supports people with mental ill health and 97% of senior managers believe that they are accessible if employees want to talk about mental health. However, 63% of managers believe that they are obliged to put the interests of their organisation above the wellbeing of team members, and 49% of employees would not talk to their manager about a mental health issue. Manager within the Hospitality industry need to talk to their staff to help bridge this gap.
Louise Aston, Wellbeing Director at Business in the Community said, “Millions of employees are suffering in silence and feel unable to share their experiences at work. When they do reach out, many are met with an inadequate response. Our findings show that we need more openness, more training and information, and more support for employees and managers. This is why we are asking employers to take three steps – Train, Talk and Take Action.”
