Mental Health Awareness
Hendeca provide services to local authorities, institutions, schools, care facilities and businesses.
The economic impact of lockdown has hit people unequally, causing immediate impacts on mental health. The Mental Health Foundation reports over a third of people in full-time work surveyed were concerned about losing their job, and mental health impacts were widespread and severe. A quarter reported not coping well with the stress of the pandemic and one in five had experienced suicidal thoughts.
As an employer or manager, you are responsible under legislation (Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999) to assess the risk of stress-related ill health arising from work activities. It is therefore your responsibility to do all you can to offer your staff support, and an affective way to do this is to train Mental Health Ambassadors on our courses. Our content is more focused on common mental health illnesses and on the solutions and self-help techniques that aid prevention of these, and ideas on how to promote mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
