Managing Mental Health
“Two-fifths of organisations claim an increase in reported mental health problems (such as anxiety and depression)” (CIPD 2015)
Mental Health is coming to the forefront of absences from the workplace, with growing absences due to mental health issues.
Our HR Medical Specialists are trained to deal with Mental Health illnesses.
One of the biggest stigmas and issues around Mental Health is legitimacy and credibility. With our team involved you can rest assured the facts of the situation will be verified and the appropriate course of action investigated for the employer.
Stress is the most common cause of long term absences (CIPD, 2016)
Mental Health issues can sometimes be classed as a Disability under the Equality Act 2010 which we can assess for you and ensure you are protected from a discrimination claim.
We can support you during an absence due to Mental Health illness or while an employee is at work who is suffering from conditions such as stress or depression as this can cause performance or behavioural issues that may need managing.
Our team of HR Medical Specialists have expertise in Mental Health and Psychology to enable them to deal with the sensitive issues surrounding Mental Health, supporting the employer and employee.
