Mental health at work 2017

Lunch ‘n’Learn sessions are short seminars lasting for one hour.

Managers are increasingly expected have an active role regarding mental health in the workplace.
Being alert to symptoms, to be able to initiate a conversation with the employee, keep in touch during a leave of absence, and facilitate the employee’s return to work.
At any one time, one in six adults will be experiencing a mental health condition. Playing a full part in supporting job retention and return to work for people with such conditions is crucial. Managers usually know what to do and say when an employee suffers a physical illness or e.g. breaks a leg. However, when the illness is depression, anxiety, panic attacks or post-traumatic syndrome, managers may be at a loss.
Proactive management of employee’s mental health, as with management of physical health, can produce a range of benefits, including reduction of sickness absence, greater staff engagement and productivity, and reduced staff turnover.
