His objective being to help as many people as possible maintain good mental health and well-being. The benefits to the public and private sector are significant: reduced absenteeism, reduced presenteeism; creating genuinely good places to work and reduce staff turnover; promoting a positive reputation; and mitigating potential employer liability. Good for business, employees and society! All courses can also be accessed by private individuals at scheduled public events.
