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. This means that often it’s impossible to have a clear picture of the real Mental Health culture in your workplace, which is why training alone is generally not enough to make the positive changes that may be required.

Instead, what’s required is a multi-pronged approach that enables you to first understand how your organisation is ‘doing mentally’, identifying any potential problems. Depending on the findings, we would then work together in tackling this through a variety of tried and tested techniques, agreeing a way mutual way forward.

These are problems that you may not be aware of, but through identifying and unlocking these problems can create a positive MH culture, increasing performance and productivity which is surely in the interest of any organisation. Our expert consultants are here to help and support you through this process.


Our consultancy services are based on a unique step-by-step assessment model that will give us a much clearer picture of any specific Mental Health issues within your organisation and what may be required to resolve them. High levels of staff turnover or absenteeism, for instance, are both indicators that the MH culture of your business may not be as good as it could be. If issues like this are identified, then our consultancy model will provide a much deeper understanding of what lies behind them. Once we have this knowledge, then our team of experts can discuss with you what needs to be done to address them.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

“Each £1 spent on Mental Health training returns as much as £10…” (World Economic Forum, 2019)
