We’ve all struggled from time to time. Equally, we all get lost in our personal and professional issues, which can mean that we overlook the struggles of our team members, colleagues, employees and friends.
Mental health awareness was elevated during the pandemic, with more and more companies providing mental health support during the turbulent time. With the pandemic firmly in the rear-view mirror and conversations about mental health no longer high on the agenda, here’s a refresher of the signs to look out for in your employees:
An employee suffering from mental health issues may not be fully aware of the changes they are displaying. This is a highly personal and sensitive topic, and, while many have tried to lift the taboo on mental health struggles, they unfortunately still persist. It is important to treat any possible situation with the utmost care and urgency.
Before approaching an employee which you suspect is struggling, it’s important to form a plan. You can start by discussing your concerns with HR, and gather the opinion of an expert before doing anything rash.
Should you decide to approach an employee to check in, its important to do so in complete privacy, and to ensure that you make them feel safe and valued, and that they are not going to be discriminated against due to any issues they may be suffering from.
Ultimately, showing empathy and giving the impression that the company is here to lend a helping hand is not only good for the people who make up your workforce, but also for the business in general.
