The positive effect of focusing on well-being and resilience as well as the negative impact of poor mental health on individuals and organisations are now widely acknowledged. Whilst well-being and resilience enables individuals to get the most out of life, flourish and benefit themselves and their organisations; un-managed mental health problems and stress have a debilitating impact on individuals, teams and the organisation with damaging consequences for all.
