4 Mental health myths that are harming your workforce (and what to do differently)
Let’s start with the number one myth that impacts most organisations sooner or later: Mental health isn’t a problem for my workforce.
Also known as everything is fine, nothing to see here. Unfortunately, the recent data on mental health indicates otherwise: Significant mental health issues affect 1 in 4 people in the UK annually—nearly 17 million people in 2022 alone. A recent study by Surgo Ventures of 17,000 people across the UK puts that number even higher, at 1 in 2—that means that half the people you know could be affected by a mental health concern.
