Employers are required to take steps to help employees suffering with mental health issues which are affecting their wellbeing
The mental health issue doesn't have to have been caused at work - it can come from outside but if work is causing the problem or aggravating it employers have a legal responsibility to provide help and assistance. We can arrange for a qualified practitioner to speak with employees and provide solutions to the problems that are causing their mental health issues.
Mental health issues are common - approximately 25% of all UK adults will at some point suffer from mental health issues. Whilst mental health problems are common, most are mild and tend to be short-term but some may need specialist help.
Stress, anxiety and depression are the most common mental health problems. Mental health issues are often a reaction to a difficult life event or can also be caused by work-related issues. If stress levels remain elevated for long periods they can lead to psychological problems such as anxiety and depression.
As noted earlier - work can aggravate pre-existing conditions and problems at work can bring on symptoms or make their effects worse. In terms of mental health and the mental wellbeing of employees we can help with any problems your employees may have and also provide advice on how to prevent work-related issues before they occur.
A happy workforce is, of course, a more productive workforce so contact us for more details of our mental wellbeing services.
