mental health at work

With the governments Thriving at Work report and Deloitte's case for investment into mental health review, workplaces are focussing on the mental health of their employees more than ever. 

 It is estimated that poor mental health costs UK employers £33bn – £42bn each year and that the return on investment of workplace mental health interventions is overwhelmingly positive. (Deloitte 2017)

Petra's work aims to answer the 6 core recommendations as laid out by the Thriving at work report in an innovative and sustainable way, this includes monitoring, training and mental health strategy coaching for CEOs and senior leadership: 

1. Produce, implement and communicate a mental health at work plan; 

2. Develop mental health awareness among employees; 

3. Encourage open conversations about mental health and the support available when employees are struggling; 

4. Provide employees with good working conditions and ensure they have a healthy work life balance and opportunities for development; 

5. Promote effective people management through line managers and supervisors; 

6.Routinely monitor employee mental health and wellbeing.

What they're saying..

Petra’s workshops were intelligent, compassionate and fun. Both young people and teachers gain so much from her knowledge and expertise. She knows how to make people feel safe and open. The BRIT SCHOOL will look to work with Petra in the future.
An excellent experience all round. Extremely well organised, comfortable venue and excellent speaker. I have known Petra for 18 months and already know her to be open, authentic and warm hearted. Her talk demonstrated command of her subject and her audience and left me with lots of great tips and personal inquiries to work on for my own personal development and growth.

Thank you. A very interesting and well delivered talk.
Hi Petra, I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the session you delivered at the Managers conference. It was a very different but very welcome addition to the event.
As a manager I have found it very difficult to address mental health in the was very reassuring to hear that sometimes just inviting someone to talk can be enough. I have made a pact with myself to start meaningful conversations in my workplace and will start by leading by example and talk about my own mental health.

Petra was honest, open and well spoken. The talk gave practical tips to move forward, was interactive and engaging. Petra is an excellent speaker. I would definitely recommend this talk. I really enjoyed it.
Petra’s story was fascinating, and formed a strong thread for her larger point.
Really good talk, full of personal insight.

I would definitely recommend to listen to Petra’s talk to anyone. Easy to follow and very inspirational.
Loved Petra’s clearcut way of speaking. Hope to join for more soon.
Thank you Petra for a fascinating talk. I learned lots of information and I am looking forward to putting it into practice.
Petra was so inspirational (her personal story really touched me). Great talk! Made me start seeing things and thinking differently. Def recommend it!
