Mental health problems in the work place are more common than you think, anxiety and depression being the most common. Most of us will suffer with a mental health issue at some point or another.
One in six of employees suffer from anxiety, depression and unmanageable stress each year.
What is mental health?
“Mental health is a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being.” There are many different types of mental illnesses such as:
Whether it is work or you are dealing with a personal situation causing you anxiety or stress your employer has a legal obligation to help you.
When a risk has been identified then steps must be taken to remove or reduce it as far as reasonably practicable.
Stress and anxiety can cause physical changes. It can cause high blood pressure, aches and pains, your muscles can get tense as you gather the stress.
If you notice any of the above or you feel stressed at work, you are not alone, and you need to tell your employer and they WILL be able to help you.
You can always approach your local GP and they will also offer you alternative methods of dealing with your stresses.
If you have employees suffering with stress or mental health illnesses within the work place you can also receive help.
If you notice one of your employees acting differently you need to act and ask them what’s wrong. If you notice any of the following; more tired than usual, they might be making uncharacteristic mistakes, find it hard to motivate themselves, timekeeping might slip, may be short tempered, you need to act. NOW.
Don’t forget about an employee when they are off, make regular contact with them so they don’t feel forgotten or isolated. Only get them back into the work place when they feel they are ready. Put support into place for when they do return to work.
