Welcome back, today I’m going to talk about mental health in the workplace One in 4 people will have a mental health
problem at some point, mental health is how we feel, think and behave, these health problems
can be caused by work related issues. Employers have a legal duty to help their
employees, work related issues must be assessed and if a risk is identified steps must be
taken to remove or reduce the cause as far as is reasonably practicable. The first thing to do as a manager would be
to talk to them as soon as you notice a problem, if they don’t want to talk to you suggest
they talk to someone else. Make reasonable adjustments at work if you
can or refer them to their GP. If an employee does go off sick keep in contact
with them so they don’t feel isolated as this could make the situation worse. There is lots of guidance and support are available on the
HSE website where you will find a list of links available which you may find useful. We offfer hints, tips and advice throughout the year so please do get in touch with us or subscribe to our YouTube channel
