With reports of mental health problems at work increasing yearly, this episode of the CIPD Podcast discusses the need for businesses to foster good mental health in their organisations. Featuring professionals from Mind and Deloitte, and MP Norman Lamb.
Many organisations are reporting an increase in mental health problems – but addressing employee mental health isn’t only about dealing with problems when they arise. It’s also about promoting and supporting good mental health in the workforce all along.
Episode 106 of the CIPD Podcast discusses how employers can provide measures to foster good mental health. The CIPD is joined by John Binns, the wellbeing and personal resilience advisor to Deloitte, about his personal experience of mental health issues and how he uses that experience to advise organisations on supporting employees; Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, about the importance of making mental health conversations normal and removing stigma; and Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk and former Minister of State at the Department of Health, giving insight into his work and why employers should make this a priority.
The podcast is 17min 05sec long – and there’s a full written transcript published too.
