The University considers mental health and wellbeing to be exceptionally important and places a number of support mechanisms in place to support the wellbeing of staff, and we continue to look for further and developing areas to continue this initiative.
The main areas that we look to have a positive impact on at this time are as follows:
- Stress in the workplace
- Breaking down stigma of mental ill health including;
See Me Scotland
- Mindful Employer
- Promotion of Mental Health First Aid
- Learning and Development initiatives on mental health for both staff and people managing staff
Further to this we have the Employee Assistance Program, provided by Care First which all staff are entitled to use.
We also look to work in conjunction with partners to provide information for staff, and this page will update on a regular basis with links to support this
