This is part of a suite of eight interconnected toolkits, produced by Business in the Community and Public Health England, to help every organisation support the mental and physical health and wellbeing of its employees. Each addresses a different aspect of workplace wellbeing, with a common thread of mental health running through them all. They’re freely available and designed to be relevant to employers across all sectors.

This one, produced with The Samaritans, is to support employers in their response to an employee taking their own life, whether that be within a workplace or outside of it – as either scenario can have a profound effect on the mental health of colleagues. It covers all stages from preparing an appropriate culture, policy and procedures, to the immediate time around a suicide, to dissemination of news through an organisation and supporting employees through the subsequent days, months and years. It’s divided into sections on different topics with built-in navigation and links between them, so you can follow it step by step or go straight to the sections you want to know more about.
You can also download a self-assessment toolkit, in Excel spreadsheet format, to gauge your organisation’s progress in implementing the measures recommended across several of the Business in the Community / Public Health England toolkits.
