Mental Health in the workplace
Work related stress, anxiety and depression is costing the UK’s economy an estimated £70-100 billion annually and 70 million sick days per year. However, it is not just the financial cost to the business that needs to be considered but the impact on the employee and their perception of you as an employer. A good employer values, supports and invests in its staff not simply because of the impact sickness absence has on your business and your brand.
Mental Health in the schools
Many young people today also experience anxiety, stress or anxiety based depression, and ensuring that they have the support and skills to manage these conditions is incredibly important. 81% of teachers report their poor mental health has a negative impact on the quality of their relationships with pupils and on average 3 children in every class have a mental health problem.
What types of training workshops does Anxiety UK offer?
Anxiety UK offers bespoke training packages to cater for your individual requirements as well as supporting you to undertake an audit of your workplace well-being initiatives and engage specialists in their field to deliver dedicated support tailored for your objectives.
Our core training packages include:

- Understanding and supporting panic attacks
What will I learn in an Anxiety UK training workshop?
Our packages include a range of information, discussion, practical activities and scope to reflect on your current mental health understanding and provision. The workshop will help you to understand and recognise how anxiety affects the mind and body and what to look out for when you think your colleagues, employees or pupils are struggling with their mental health. We will teach you about different types of anxiety and ways to manage anxiety at home and in the workplace/school. Our workplace based training also looks at how to discuss mental health with a manager or supervisee and how your organisation as a whole can be positive mental health ambassadors.
What do our clients say?
Kate Le Cocq, Head of Student Services, Futureworks
and staff at Queen Ethelburgas School
“I wanted to thank you so much for running the training session with us last week. It was really brilliant and I’ve had a number of staff let me know that they had learnt a great deal.”
” Anxiety and panic attacks were issues which had been highlighted by our students as being a significant issue and I know that students were grateful that this had been acknowledged. Having spoken to several students who were in your workshops, they said that your presentation was a good source of information for them and that it had made them think a lot more about the difficulties faced by those who suffered from anxiety.”
Jan Kelly, A&E Sister/Practice Educator, Trafford General Hospital
“The Anxiety UK panic attack training provided me with a useful understanding of panic attacks, and practical knowledge which will enable me to confidently and effectively help panic sufferers presenting at A&E in future. I would highly recommend this training.”
Cancer Research UK
“The trainer has a great presenting style, with lots of examples from her own practice which is really useful. I came away with lots of practical techniques for dealing with health anxiety.”
Staff at The View from the Shard
“I didn’t know much before this event but it has really opened my eyes about anxiety. An excellent session, I learnt a lot and feel more confident in understanding the subject”
Staff at E-on Energy
“I wish I knew this before, it would have helped me intervene earlier before the anxiety increased. The section on dealing with stress helped me recognise what I do that helps”
