Infographic: Mental health conditions at work

One in four people will experience some form of mental health condition in the course of a year, and mental health issues can have a significant impact on a person’s ability to work effectively and, consequently, on an organisation’s productivity. Employers have a duty of care towards their staff so it’s important for managers to be able to spot the signs of mental health problems and support staff who are experiencing mental health issues.

      It’s good that you are looking to support employees with mental health issues and stress. Fit for Work does not provide courses unfortunately, but I have included some links to organisations who may be able to offer training:

      The Health and Safety Executive have some useful information for managers including this guidance:
