Now more than ever we must continue to reach out, support one another and raise mental health awareness. 70 million workdays are lost each year due to mental health problems in the UK, and 300,000 people with long-term mental health problems leave their jobs each year.
We have over 20 years’ experience working with organisations to train, support and advise them on how to identify mental health issues and provide support and assistance to individuals who may be suffering. This has taken various forms, such as: personal resilience courses, stress awareness in the workplace, stress management in the workplace, assist suicide prevention training and mental health first aid.
People Managing People have recently published an article that adds to this vital conversation. Since so many people have restricted their movements during Covid, Zoom has, in many ways, become the new workplace. While many people appreciate the flexibility that Zoom allows, it can also trigger anxieties, and without the support of a physical office, mental health issues may go unseen, thus unaddressed. This fantastic article also holds a discussion of 10 tips to improve mental health in the new virtual workplace.
Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) will help you to identify, understand and help someone who may be suffering. We have experienced and passionate Associates who can deliver this course face to face and virtually.
