New mental health and wellbeing plan

In April, the government opened a consultation seeking views on what could be done to improve everyone’s mental health and wellbeing.

Acas set out its response to the call for evidence, which dealt with the question “do you have ideas for how employers can support and protect the mental health of their employees”.

Some of the responses by Acas included:

  • There is evidence linking good work with positive wellbeing.
  • The management of positive health is a shared responsibility between employer, line manager and individuals.
  • Senior leadership buy-in is key to creating a culture conducive to positive mental health and wellbeing.
  • Managers should be trained and skilled in having regular meaningful conversations on complex and sensitive issues.
  • Communication is two way, and individuals should look after their own wellbeing and engage with their line manager in order for them to identify triggers and how they can be addressed.
  • Establishing clear boundaries is vital and managers should never be expected to be counsellors, and that they should be aware of their limitation and know how to signpost their employee.

You can read more about Acas response on this topic in their published article.

Mental Health training

We currently offer a variety of mental health training courses including Level 2 Mental Health First Aid. This course is suitable for all members of staff.

It has been designed to help employers to provide a positive mental health culture within the workplace and to provide learners with comprehensive knowledge on a range of the most common mental health conditions and the skills to be able to act should a condition be suspected.

Those who complete the course will be considered First Aiders for Mental Health and be a point of contact within the workplace to help and support those with any mental health issues.
