The mental health of your employees is just as important as their physical health and it’s important that employers give the same consideration towards managing the risks. All employers have a responsibility for their employees’ health and safety in the workplace, including pre-existing mental health conditions and conditions brought on by work.
One in four adults will experience a mental health condition in any given year yet mental health problems, including depression, and with the cost of replacing staff lost due to mental health conditions reported to be £2.4bn per year in the UK alone, it makes sense to take a proactive approach when it comes to mental health.
We work with clients to develop mental health programmes, ranging from policies and procedures to help improve the mental health of your workforce, through to training sessions and psychological assessments. Our occupational health team includes trained counsellors and we offer a range of specialist counselling services such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) which helps people suffering with personal pressures, stress, anxiety and depression.
Stress is a major cause of workplace absenteeism, with workloads and management styles being the main contributing factors. Sound Advice can help you to reduce absenteeism as well as assess workplace performance.
