Support Mental Health
Understanding how mental health affects your employees is essential. Workplace wellbeing isn’t just about physical health and it is important you take care of your team. If an employee is suffering from poor mental health, it should be taken seriously and there are several ways you can support them.

Understand Your Employees
Your employees are fundamental to your business. The healthier and happier they are, the healthier your business will be. It is important you understand your employees and create a safe environment for them to be open and honest.
60% of employees say that they would feel more likely to recommend their organisation as a good workplace if their employer took action to support their mental health and wellbeing.
Offer Training to Managers
It is important to offer opportunities for managers to attend relevant training to support staff who suffer from poor mental health. As a manager, you need to understand that each employee is different.
While some employees require very little support, others may require more.
Providing employees with educational resources from organizations such as Mind and Mental Health First Aid England is a good way to help them understand. In addition to this, staff sessions on mental health and wellbeing can bring colleagues together, share information and discuss issues.
Increasing awareness helps break the stigma and normalises the topic of mental health at work.
Encourage Work-Life Balance
Work-life balance is essential in promoting a healthy work environment. It helps reduce stress and prevents the risk of workplace burnout. Chronic stress is one of the most common issues in the workplace and can lead to ramifications.
By creating a work environment that prioritises a work-life balance, employers will maintain a healthier and more productive workforce.
