Mind has created this free resource for line managers and HR professionals to help them support staff who are experiencing poor mental health.
It is critical that those who are in a position of providing support to direct reports or who are responsible for staff know how to recognise and approach an employee with a mental health problem. This PDF from Mind outlines some universal principles in this area, including how to have a conversation with someone about mental health and supporting someone with a mental health problem. It covers a range of important issues, such as reasonable adjustments that can be made, supporting an employee while off sick and how to manage an employee returning to work.
The guidance in this resource is designed to be universal and can be applied to a diverse range of workplaces and sectors.
Outstanding guide for an employer and manager on how to treat someone with mental ill health appropriately. It deals with all steps, from culture and conversation to managing absences and return to work.
