Transforming mental health in the workplace


Mental health for many employees has come under enormous, prolonged strain and providing support in this area remains a critical priority for employers. The challenge is often how to do this in a way that can reach, engage and benefit each and every employee effectively.


Mercer Marsh Benefits (MMB) in collaboration with Make A Difference, have designed a new, digital workplace mental health training course to help employees thrive and perform at their best. By helping us all stay at the healthy end of the mental health continuum, we can build stronger, more resilient workplaces.


The four-part, highly engaging e-learning programme highlights the key symptoms of common mental health conditions and how to spot early warning signs in yourself and others. Packed with practical tips, reflective questions and calls to action, it helps employees build personal resilience and learn how to bounce back - or even forwards - from challenges and setbacks. 

A mental health awareness programme for all…

  • Designed and accredited by MMB’s workplace wellbeing experts
  • Draws on research in psychology and neuroscience
  • Brought to life by celebrities sharing their experiences

Benefits for your business:
