Protecting what’s below the iceberg…
What Is X-Calibre Mental Health?
X-Calibre Mental Health (XCMH) is an international training provider, offering a variety of Ofqual and bespoke courses which aim to help educate people about mental health, and ultimately… save lives. Do you want to promote a better, more positive Mental Health Culture and reap the benefits from this? Check out our offerings:
We provide expert professional consultancy based on your problems. At X-Calibre Mental Health (XCMH), we often say you can think of Mental Health (MH) as being similar to an iceberg because unlike an obvious physical illness the important issues are actually hidden beneath the surface. It’s what’s below the iceberg that matters.
OFQUAL REGULATED COURSES
X-Calibre Mental Health’s (XCMH) Ofqual regulated courses will help participants recognise potential Mental Health (MH) conditions early.
This is crucial in helping prevent them from getting worse and for directing those who are suffering to the professional support they need as quickly as possible. Not only this, but these courses provide a recognised qualification.
At XCMH we can tailor sessions to meet the needs of your organisation, and include contributions from members of our diverse Voices of Experience Team to help put the message across in the right way. This training helps create a safer, more positive work culture that improves the overall organisation performance.
The Benefits to MH Training
Creating a positive MH culture in the workplace is not only good for your employees but it can also help you create a competitive advantage by enabling you to:
Reduce Staff Absenteeism
91 million workdays are lost in the UK each year due to mental illness (World Economic Forum 2019) but do you know what the figure is for your organisation?
Decrease Staff Turnover
Almost one-third of adults say they have suffered from a MH problem in the workplace. (Mynurva 2018). This is often an underlying cause of them leaving and never returning. So, if you have high staff turnover, it could be a sign that the MH culture of the business isn’t as good as it could be.
Improve Personal Productivity
Unlike a physical injury, MH issues are often not apparent or easy to spot. At XCMH, we see MH as being like an iceberg because what’s most important is often hidden beneath the surface. So, though your employees may be at their desks, if they are grappling with work-related MH challenges then they won’t be working effectively.
Cut Costs and Increase Profit
because MH challenges lead to absenteeism and lower personal productivity they can seriously hit your bottom line. XCMH’s consultancy services can help you identify areas where MH Health issues are having an impact on your organisation and then create a plan of action for dealing with them.
Demonstrate a Caring Culture
if you demonstrate that you are a caring employer who deals empathetically with MH conditions then you will reap dividends in terms of improving staff loyalty, morale and team working. This will also feed into your wider organisational values such as diversity and inclusion, all of which will enhance your reputation and make it easier to recruit new talent.
