Mental Health in the Workplace

Everything Employers Need to Know.

In our society, an increasing number of people are finding that they suffer from a mental impairment that affects their day to day activities.

Awareness of such issues has increased significantly. Employers are still often unsure how to deal with somebody who presents as having a stress related or psychological illness. 

Here we look at:

  • How can you promote positive mental health at work?
  • Section 6 of the Equality Act – whom does it cover?
  • How do you obtain medical evidence on such a difficult subject matter?
  • Importance of confidentiality and data protection rights.
  • What types of reasonable adjustment might you implement?
  • Avoiding the “tick-box” response to employees with mental illnesses.
  • What to do if an employee with a mental illness goes AWOL
