Bringing better Mental Health and Wellbeing to the workplace so to increase engagement and performance.
Mental health costs UK up to £42bn each year and between 60-70 percent of people with common mental health problems are at work.
Our workshops, assessments and coaching provides the tools to promote mental health and wellbeing in your business and increase engagement and performance.
Understanding our own mental health is not only crucial to identifying changing states of mental health but also what impacts our mental health in both a positive and negative way.
The more we understand about ourselves the easier it is to implement coping strategies to help enhance mental health if we are having “a wobble” but also to maintain good mental health in the long term.
That is why MH Screening is important for everyone. We never know when something could happen in our lives which impacts on us negatively so understanding what can help us cope with changing circumstances will always be helpful in the long term.
Annurca’s MH Screening measures three core elements of mental wellbeing. These being stress, anxiety and depression.
The process itself is designed to screen and signpost people, not to diagnose mental health conditions.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) teaches people how to understand more about Mental Health and equip them with that right skills to identify signs in other people as well as providing the right support. Support, particularly in the early stages, can have a massive impact for the individual and the organisation.
MHFA teaches people how to identify, understand and help a person who may be developing a mental health issue. Physical first aid has now become a critical support service within most organisations and MHFA is quickly following suit. Teaching groups of employees how to recognise the crucial warning signs of mental ill health not only helps create a better place to work, it also makes good business sense.
Simply piling more pressure on employees and expecting higher productivity is often a false economy; increasing only sickness and staff turnover levels.
MHFA training and support materials provide a step by step approach to help organisations to create a healthy environment, introduce awareness-raising initiatives, identify the first signs of mental ill health and support staff who are experiencing an issue.
Annurca offer the full range of MHFA England licensed MHFA courses. MHFA courses have been developed to meet the needs of a variety of organisations and groups. They are all evidence based internationally recognised courses, and are flexible to meet your needs. Half day MHFA training courses raise awareness, full day MHFA course equip you to be a Champion in Mental Health and how to support others, and the full two day courses equip you to be a Mental Health First Aider.
Individuals can attend as part of a public course but if participating numbers are sufficient they can also be carried out at your place of work
Resilience is the capacity to maintain wellbeing and work performance under pressure and being able to bounce back from setbacks effectively. This ability derives from natural traits but can also be taught.
We assist organisations to understand their resilience through delivery of bespoke workshops and by seeking staff feedback on their levels of engagement; how effectively they deal with change; the strength of working relationships; how staff deal with challenges and set-backs etc.
The costs of absence due to stress, anxiety and related mental health difficulties can be particularly high and we seek to provide practical solutions to stress management and reduction along with enabling employees to respond positively to the pressures and demands of modern life and to help them identify opportunities to thrive.
We also focus on managers, supervisors and team leaders, emphasising a ‘best practice’ approach to management coupled with a clear understanding of stress and its causes and effects. It is the basis for good prevention and management of stress and also for building their personal resilience. It will show managers how, in practice, to manage stress and build resilience amongst their team members.
