The advent of Covid-19 has shone a light on mental health. With employees working from home or furloughed, the absence of face-to-face human interaction will be difficult for some to deal with. Just as we must take new steps to ensure our employees are safe and protected as and when they return to work, so we have a duty of care towards the wellbeing of those who are absent from the workplace. Our approach to mental health should be the same as any other health condition within the workplace. 

We're now bringing our Mental Health courses online to enable employers to maintain their duty of care and support for employees. Content has been amended to account for the remote status of employees and the need for managers to use online conferencing platforms to contact their team members.
