A diverse, healthy and productive workforce is essential to the success of organisations.

However, pre-Covid-19 almost 1 in 7 people in the UK experienced mental health challenges in the workplace and evidence suggests that 12.7% of all sickness days could be attributed to mental health conditions.

Young people can be particularly affected but When in work young people often fear raising issues around their mental health with their managers for fear of being treated differently and even losing their jobs.

Many employers want to help but are unsure how to support young people when mental health issues are raised. They can sometimes make the situation worse through a lack of knowledge and appropriate support.

This event, organised in partnership between 42nd Street and Talent RISE, is an opportunity to change this.
