Wellbeing at Work

Across the globe depression and anxiety are currently costing the global economy $925 billion each year[1], with those statistics expected to rise.  It is crucial to treat mental illness when it occurs and prevent it wherever possible.  But it’s equally important to focus on helping people build their quality of social, professional and personal lives through learning about their unique strengths, values, meaning and purpose in their lives and how to be resilient in times of challenge and change.  With 1 in 6 workers around the world actively dealing with a mental health disorder[2],  organisations have a unique opportunity to help their employees lead healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives – while increasing productivity, profitability and competitive edge at the same time.
