Thames Water produced this short video that does two things. Firstly, introduce employees to Open Thoughts, their initiative to make it clear that it's OK for staff to speak openly about anything that's bothering them. And secondly, make people laugh.
Thames Water is the UK’s largest water and wastewater services provider, supplying around 2,600 million litres of tap water across London and the Thames Valley.
Resources from this organisation:
Thames Water produced this film featuring their staff, based on the Time to Change 'Be In Your Mate's Corner' campaign video. It's all about encouraging employees to look out for each other and offer a listening ear.
This leaflet tells Thames Water employees that there are qualified mental health first aiders available, and lists other sources of support too. It's an example of how you can encourage staff to seek help when they need it.
Thames Water has produced a guide to help line managers in the organisation support people in their teams who are experiencing mental health difficulties. It's brief, colourful and filled with specific tips and signposts to further information.
Thames Water has published its employee mental health strategy in a brief, colourful booklet accessible to all staff. It outlines why mental health is important, the measures they're putting in place and what staff can do.
