Safety4Good event “More than Mental Health”
What works with workplace mental health?
Introducing our speaker - Tom Oxley, Workplace Mental Health Strategist
TEDx speaker Tom specialises in evidence-based Mental Health Strategies for Workplaces, and creates outstanding training for leaders, managers and frontline staff.
He’ll give you the real inside story about mental health at work, drawing from his work from clients including TFL, Exxonmobil, Cambridge University, East Anglian Air Ambulance and Cadbury.
Our lively, fun and engaging session will show you what works (and what doesn’t) using real stories, statistics and uplifting examples that you can take away and use immediately.

Facts surrounding Mental Health
6000 people per year complete suicide - 75% men and 25% women.
As a man under 35, you are more likely to die of suicide rather than physical injury or illness.
Cost for UK business - £100billion per annum* Deloittes audit commissioned by Government.
300,000 people lose or leave their job every year due to mental health.
The campaign says 1 in 4 people will experience poor mental health in any one year – the reality is we ALL have mental health.
Only 7% of people say that work alone is the sole cause of their poor mental health. Life (non-work factors) play a role in 93%.
