Cardinal Corporate: Workplace Mental Health

Umbrella Mental Health Support for Companies

Workplace Mental Health

The Thriving at Work¹ report of October 2017 recognised the scale of the challenge in promoting workplace mental health. At the heart of this report was a vision that all organisations will be:

  • Equipped with the awareness and tools to not only address but prevent mental ill-health caused or worsened by work;
  • Equipped to support individuals with a mental health condition to thrive, from recruitment and throughout the organisation;
  • Aware of how to get access to timely help to reduce sickness absence caused by mental ill health.

Cardinal Clinic has more than 40 years of experience in providing employees with the best clinical treatment for mental health conditions through its private mental health hospital.  It is from this experience, we have developed Cardinal Corporate.

At Cardinal Corporate, we are passionate about supporting employers promote better mental health at work, as well as supporting those employees who experience poor mental wellbeing.  We believe we can make a substantial contribution to companies looking to deliver the Thriving at Work aspirations.

Cardinal Corporate delivers outstanding clinical services from leading psychiatrists and therapists. 

Our clinic is set in the heart of Windsor’s greenbelt, providing the facilities and environment which support effective recovery from mental health conditions.

Facts and Figures

The cost of mental health to employers has been estimated to be between £33bn and £42bn per year.

In 2015-16 stress accounted for 37% of all work-related ill health and 45% of all working days lost.

Return on investment from mental health training programme could result in £9.98 per £1 spent

About Cardinal Corporate Partner Programme

Cardinal Corporate Partners

It is our philosophy that better workplace mental health can only be achieved by working in partnership with employers.  For this reason we invite companies and organisations to become a Cardinal Corporate Partner.

We do not make a charge for being a partner.  You will only incur fees if clinical treatment is required for one of your employees or if you wish us to provide training sessions for your teams.

Cardinal Corporate Partners receive priority access to clinical treatment for their teams, a bespoke rapid referral process and an invitation to regular training and education services.

Rapid Referral Service

It is well understood that rapid access to treatment for employees with mental ill-health is critical to the outcomes for the individual, the wellbeing of their team and the financial implications for the organisation.

We have made delivering this the cornerstone of the Cardinal Corporate business.

Education and Training

Through our education and training programme, we aim to reduce the occurrence of poor mental health by up-skilling the HR teams, line managers and staff members in managing the mental health within the organisation.

The adage that “prevention is better than cure” is something we believe to be critical.

Insurance and Fees

We believe that transparency in our fee structure is important.  As part of our process for on-boarding new Cardinal Corporate Partners, we will agree a rate card of fees for all clinical services.

Alternatively, we have agreements with all major health insurance providers and can liaise with them directly, if your staff have this cover.
