How to improve mental health well-being in your workplace.

Did you know that according to mental health charity Mind, more than one in five (21 per cent) agreed that they had called in sick to avoid work when asked how workplace stress had affected them?

With figures from Mind also showing mental health problems affect one in six British workers each year, we’ve put together some of our top tips for you to improve mental health well-being in your business.

 

IMPLEMENT A MENTAL HEALTH PLAN OR POLICY

Creating a mental health at work plan and communicating to your staff will help to create a positive company culture where your employees feel they will be able to talk about their mental health.

Promoting talking about mental well-being can also help to reduce prejudice and stigma and increases engagement, making employees feel they can disclose any issues.

Mind has a wealth of online resources to help you and your staff.

 

ENCOURAGE STAFF TO TAKE A LUNCH BREAK

Promoting your staff to take a break and having a hearty, healthy meal can boost both their physical and mental health. Stepping away from their desks, can help them relax and clear their mind, leaving them feeling less stressed.

Why not organise a team meal or set up a walking or running group in everyone’s lunch break to bring them all together? Lunchtimes can be a great time for colleagues to connect and build stronger working relationships.

 

HAVE AN OPEN DIALOGUE CULTURE

Creating an ethos where you have regular one-to-ones and open dialogues, incorporating conversations about mental health make sure that staff’s well-being is monitored regularly throughout your business.

You can do this by supporting managers to regularly speak to their team members about how they are doing, what could be impacting their mental health both inside and outside of work and adding a process into your appraisal procedure that asks staff about mental health and stress.

 

NOMINATE A MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AIDER

To help identify mental health issues in your workforce, sending a member of your team on a Mental Health First Aid training course will teach them to spot the symptoms of mental health issues, offer initial help and guide a person towards support. The training can also teaches Mental Health First Aiders to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis - and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.

Mental Health First Aid have a range of training options, designed to benefit employees, line managers, HR professionals, OH workers and senior leaders alike.

Mind also offer a range of courses for workplace training.
