Mental health in the workplace: advice for managers
A new factsheet from the UK EAPA provides practical strategies for managers to support employees and constructively manage situations where mental health is contributing factor.
“Line managers are faced with numerous responsibilities relating to the guidance, support, development, discipline and performance of employees, and also hold shared responsibility for ensuring the employer’s duty of care for the welfare of their staff is delivered.
“Increasing recognition of the prevalence of mental health issues and workplace stress requires line managers to have greater awareness of sustainable strategies that address these issues and meet the requirements of both employees and the wider businesses,” said Caroline Ribeiro-Nelson, author of the factsheet, who is an experienced Psychotherapist, Consultant and Trainer and is an individual member of the UK EAPA.
