Mental Health & Productivity Pilot – East Midlands Region


Did you know?…

…the cost of mental health related sickness absence is at a record high £53-£56 billion per year (2020/21), an increase of 25% since 2019 – according to Deloitte’s 2022 report: MENTAL HEALTH AND EMPLOYERS: PANDEMIC AND BEYOND

…for every £1 you spend on supporting mental wellbeing in the workplace you can get an average return of £5.30?

…a happier, healthier workforce will want to keep working for you and you’ll attract new talent.

What is MHPP?…

The Mental Health and Productivity Pilot (MHPP) is a collaboration of Midlands universities and other partners working together since 2019 to support Midlands’ business communities and their employees, improve workplace mental health, and reduce the impact it has on sickness absence, presenteeism and productivity.

Our support is tailored to local needs and delivered locally in the Midlands by people who understand our region and are passionate about mental health, wellbeing, and economic growth.

We know from our research that employers need and want help in this area, but there are so many options to choose from that often, they don’t know where to start. We provide a solution that is evidence-based and doesn’t cost financially.

Our work is funded by the Department for Work and Pensions and supported by the Department for Health and Social Care and Midlands Engine.

“Doing nothing is no longer an option for organisations who want to grow, retain staff and enjoy a sustainable and resilient future.”


We’re working with more than 800+ Midlands’ employers to put measures in place for a happier, healthier workforce. Our initiatives can also lead to increased staff retention and improved productivity.
