“Mental health is often missing from public health debates even though it’s critical to wellbeing.” Diane Abbott
Introducing AMH Works
Mental health is the most important aspect to a person’s physical and emotional wellbeing. Without good mental health and the tools and skills to maintain it, the pressures of everyday life will take their toll on even the strongest person.
Stress and depression are at the highest levels they have ever been, and this is causing huge problems both to people and organisations. Last year alone mental health cost the Northern Ireland Economy £790 million. Mental health problems cost the NHS £3 billion in total, which was more than any other illness. Mental health problems are also one of the largest contributing factors to long term absenteeism and long term presenteeism. These are numbers not to be laughed at.
Luckily one of the most important factors in maintaining good mental health and resilience is work. In today’s climate work has taken on a whole new importance both to employers and employees. Unfortunately, work has also taken on a whole new level of pressure. Some people thrive under this pressure for a time but inevitably if the pressure gets too much this will affect out mental wellbeing.
AMH Works has been set up by AMH, with a view to helping people and organisations combat these factors. Through our courses in Mental Health Awareness, Stress Management, Personal Resilience and Mindful Manager we can give you the skills to learn how to deal with the stresses of modern life both in work and at home and through these programmes you will be better equipped to be the best you that you can be.
