A note on Mental Health and Wellbeing
Mental health and wellbeing affects us all. People may
fluctuate between thriving, struggling, being well, and being ill, and possibly
unable to attend work. We believe that
mental health difficulties should not be a barrier to employees reaching their
full potential at work.
Nobody is immune to mental health difficulties and we are
committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of our employees and
supporting their mental wellbeing. There
is never a wrong time to ask for help and support and there is never a wrong
time to simply ask someone how they are feeling and take some time to listen.
It is important we build a culture that breaks down the stigma of mental health
issues to help colleagues feel comfortable asking for support.
Read more about support on the Mental Health and Wellbeing Support page and the External Resources page.
If you are experiencing a life threatening
emergency please call 999 now. If you feel that your mental health is at
breaking point, you can speak to Samaritans or Edinburgh Crisis Centre.
The resources and information listed is to
help you look after yourself and your colleagues. If you have any feedback
