Read our quick guide for managers on mental health in the workplace
“I am most concerned that many people suffering mental health issues are left at the mercy of managers who may have little or no training / experience” – JulieR
What are the signs I should be looking out for?
It’s also important to remember that not everyone who is experiencing a mental health problem will have (or want) a diagnosis. Some employees may be experiencing difficult feelings and symptoms that do not match a specific diagnosis. They may still need support.
What treatment and support are available?
Understanding more about the treatment that’s available can help you feel more confident about dealing with disclosure and supporting your employees to access (and benefit from) the right help for them.
Read more about common treatments and support and how these might affect your colleagues.
Finally, remember that everyone’s experience of a mental health problem is different. If you’re a manager, our supporting employees with mental health problems section has more information on working with your staff to create personal action plans to identify the support they need.
