In terms of the mental wellbeing of employees, employers are required to take steps to help mental health issues which are affecting the mental wellbeing of employees.
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 for their employees. We can arrange for a qualified practitioner to speak with employees and provide solutions to the problems causing mental health issues.
Mental health issues are common - Approximately 25% of all UK adults will at some point suffer from mental health issues. While mental health problems are common, most are mild, 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 also 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 problems in relation to work-related issues before they occur.
A happy workforce is, of course, a more productive workforce so contact us for more details in terms of our mental wellbeing services.
