Cycle Against Suicide – Workplace programme.
Recent research into mental health in the workplace found that a large proportion – nearly 80 percent – of Ireland’s corporate employees suffer from concerning levels of stress, anxiety and depression.
Given the strong nexus between health and productivity, Cycle Against Suicide is working with employers to develop and implement an effective approach to mental health to support the mental health and well-being of their staff.
Cycle Against Suicide’s Workplace programme is peer support in a safe and non-judgemental space. At its core, our programme is about people helping people, and is designed to support employees navigating stressful or difficult circumstances that could impact on their productivity. It is a cost-effective approach to promoting and sustaining a culture of wellness and helps to build a supportive community at work.
Cycle Against Suicide’s goal is to see that people who are experiencing stress/distress, are able to receive the support they need within their work environments. The result is a reduced rate of absenteeism, improved employee morale and higher rates of employee retention and engagement.
