POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER CAN SEVERELY AFFECT WORKING LIFE

Help us fund dedicated awareness training for UK businesses

Vision

Our vision is for all UK businesses to be aware of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and have standard measures in place, to ensure a positive and supportive working environment for those suffering with PTSD and related mental health conditions, throughout England and Wales.

Mission

Our mission is to raise awareness of PTSD and the effects that it can have in the workplace. We want those suffering to be aware of the support available to them. We will help to provide employers with the relevant information, training and support, to help make the working day more manageable for those suffering from PTSD.

How we can help

We will provide grants to fund PTSD awareness training for UK businesses throughout England and Wales. We will work to implement measures across all UK businesses, to create a positive mental health environment for all employees.

Estimated number of mental health related sick days per year

Mental illness is the leading cause of sickness absence in the United Kingdom, with a recent British study estimating the figure to be approximately 70 million sick days per year. The cost of mental illness in the United Kingdom is around £100 billion per year *

Conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are becoming more recognised, yet due to lack of understanding, many employers are not aware of how much it can impact on a person’s working life and what changes need to be made in the workplace, to support an employee who is suffering. 

We want to change this by raising awareness of the condition and the ways in which it affects individuals at work. By creating a mentally healthy workplace, absences can be reduced, productivity can improve and employees can work in an environment where they feel valued, appreciated and safe.
