Mental Health In The Workplace

Mental health can affect one in four people at some point in their lives, often leading to a change in the way people think, feel and behave. This can not only impact an individual’s social and personal life but their professional one too.

On average, we spend over a third of our lives at work, so it is important to ensure that you feel comfortable, safe and happy. Employers have the responsibility to not only reduce unnecessary stresses in the workplace but to also organise support for employee mental health.

Without support, employees suffering from mental health conditions may struggle with finding confidence and identity at work. This can have a knock-on effect on productivity and overall performance.

Too much stress and anxiety can lead to burnout, absences or strained relationships. Communication is key when supporting and reassuring staff that are struggling. A recent study undertaken by Forbes showed that more than 4 in 10 employees were worried about retaliation if they took time off for their mental health. Reassuring your employees that they have your support can remove added worries.

How Can Employers Do Better?

It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that their workplace is mentally healthy and positive. This not only leads to happier staff but can also boost productivity. Training resources are available via mental health charities such as The Cellar Trust and Mind, which provide advice on how to take care of your staff and how to look after their mental wellbeing at work.
