Building Wellbeing and Mental Toughness
Why Mental Toughness?
Mental health at work is, rightly, becoming increasingly high-profile. Recent research suggests that as many as one sixth of employees have mental health issues. For these, clinical interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be helpful.
For the remainder of employees, clinical interventions are not appropriate. What they need help with is building their resilience, motivation and focus in order to improve their wellbeing and performance.
