Whether you’re an employee worried about your own or a colleague’s mental health or an employer thinking about staff wellbeing – there are many ways that SAMH can help.
At least 1 in 6 of us at work experience common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Research from our friends at See Me reveals that 48% of people don’t tell their employers about mental health problems for fear of losing their job.
Use the SAMH solutions guide to Making reasonable adjustments at work for people with mental health problems.
To create a mentally healthy workplace, one of the things you need to do is focus on staff well-being.
SAMH run workplace sessions and campaigns centred around the workplace.
Become a SAMH corporate partner
Creating an atmosphere in which people can talk about their mental health and addressing problems before they become a crisis will help you retain staff and decrease sickness absence.
By becoming a SAMH Corporate Partner, you can help reduce the stigma and discrimination attached to mental health. You will also show your commitment to the health and wellbeing of your employees.
With the support of our Corporate Partners, we are able to work towards reducing the stigma around mental health. But there are other ways that companies can work with us. We have a range of packages to suit your organisation, from sponsorship to corporate team opportunities in our SAMH Stomp!
