The month of May is home to Mental Health Awareness Week (13th May – 19th May), which is a week of great importance, and we try to emphasise this to our clients as much as possible.
Of course, thinking of your mental health should be important for every person daily, but this week is extremely useful in helping to remind people just how important looking after your mind can be. It helps to promote and understand mental health and also mental health illnesses that are more common in today’s society than people may expect.
There are a number of services that we offer here at valentine to help with our mental health, some of which include:
Employee assistance Programme
The ideal management tool for improving the psychological and emotional wellbeing of your employees. Our EAP has an intrinsic value in regard to tackling stress in the workplace, decreasing employee absence and increasing retention as well as assist you to meet your duty of care obligations.
Wellbeing or Wellness Programmes are becoming more and more popular as employers realise, investing in an employee’s health and wellbeing can prove an invaluable investment to aid workers physical and mental health, improving productivity, engaging staff and morale.
To give you an idea of the wellbeing services we can tailor for you:
Sickness Absence Management
Employee sickness absence can have a huge effect on the cost to an organisation. This is why Valentine provides an effective method to manage employee absence. Depending on the specific case and nature of an employee’s absence will ultimately affect who the employee will need to be referred too. This could be either an occupational health advisor or occupational health physician.
Mental Health Awareness Week can also be a time to discuss this topic that is often not discussed at all, and share experiences/feelings with people close to us; a problem shared, is a problem halved.
