Mental Health Qualifications

It is estimated that 1 in 4 individuals are likely to experience mental ill-health at some point in their lives and that around 300,000 people with long-term mental health health problems lose their jobs each year – this is much higher than those with physical conditions,

15% of people at work have symptoms of an existing mental health condition.

The cost of poor mental health to the economy and the NHS combined is estimated to be between £74 billion and £99 billion each year.
