As employers, our approach to mental health should be the same as any other health condition within the workplace. We have a duty of care towards our employees and should ensure they are safe and that the work environment is a safe place to be.

As HR Practitioners, we understand how those with Mental Health issues should be treated in the workplace; both for the benefit of the sufferers’ own wellbeing, and to avoid falling foul of discrimination claims under the Equalities Act. We are able to impart our knowledge of dealing with real life cases to encourage best practice in your own business.

We offer a range of courses designed to enable both employers and employees to become more aware of mental health issues in the workplace.
