Poor mental health is a costly problem
One in six workers will experience mental health problems, like anxiety, stress or depression, at any given time. Fostering an open and supportive work culture goes a long way towards helping employees feel valued in their work and, importantly, confident in talking about mental health.
You have taken the first, most important step in volunteering to be trained as a Mental Health First Aider/Advocate. You want to support your colleagues as best you can and signpost them to the best support resources available.

How to support wellbeing at work

Regular one-to-ones, a listening ear and encouraging positive mental health are all steps a Mental Health First Aider can take to create a supportive environment – but being able to pinpoint where that help should be directed and personalise it is the way to effect real change.
Govox is key to that change.
