A workplace culture that supports mental health can benefit from employees who are happier, more productive, motivated, easier to retain and less likely to contribute towards absenteeism and labour turnover. 

Employers can take pride in mobilising this programme that can benefit individuals and the organisation as a whole.

The Mental Health Aware Programme will help you to embed and increase mental health awareness in your organisation.
