Supporting Your Workforce’s Mental Health

In this blog, Causeway Young Professional Member and Head of Research and Development at OK Positive Megan Harkins outlines the benefits of managing mental health in the workplace and offers Causeway members an exclusive discount to their innovative mental health management app.


Many of us use preventative measures for our physical health such as keeping fit, healthy eating and exercising. But why don’t we do the same for our mental health when both play such a pivotal role in our productivity and loyalty within a workplace? 

Typically, we only seek help for our mental health once we realise there is a serious problem or have let things escalate more than we would like. On average, mental health problems cost £1,300 per employee to the UK economy (Centre for Mental Health). Therefore, action to be able to support employee mental health is crucial, and has never been more important than now, in the current pandemic. 

OK Positive is here to provide you with the tools to not only support your employees’ mental health, but the analytics to create meaningful change within your organisation. 

We aim to open up healthy and workable narratives both in and out of the workplace and we do this in two ways: 

  1. by providing employees with an app that has access to a wealth of resources which are both physical and psychological in nature, the ability to mood track, as well as the ability to feedback directly to the company completely anonymously. 
  2. enabling the company to view the anonymously aggregated to create companywide changes to support employee mental health.




We provide real time updates on the following information:

  • Issues in your office affecting the wellbeing of your staff
  • The cost of mental health issues to your business
  • The overall happiness rating of your business

Research has shown that for every £1 invested into employee mental health, you can expect to see an average return of £5. This is due to increased productivity, less sick days, and companies taking preventative action (Deloitte). OK Positive is an all-in-one solution, with no hidden fees, that will allow you to take a step in the right direction to support mental health in the workplace.



We are currently offering all Causeway members the completely unique opportunity to implement OK Positive within your business for a 50-80% discount dependent on the size of your business. This means that it will cost less than a pint of beer per employee per month to create provide the tools for people to acknowledge, monitor and maintain a positive impact on their mental health.
