We’re transforming healthcare
Mental health conditions can be complex, so it’s crucial to have an understanding of all the issues so you can help those who need support. We’ll be by your side, working collaboratively to help you achieve your business goals, providing clarity and guidance when you need it. And as the nature of work continually changes, we’ll work with you to drive awareness, support wellbeing and deliver quick and direct access to care, putting good health in your people’s hands.
Awareness and spotting the symptoms early
Raising awareness and developing coping mechanisms is a really positive approach for your workforce. It helps build resilience, reduces progression through the stages of mental health, and helps establish a culture where support is actively sought and offered.
We’ll consult on what’s right for your business, whether that’s onsite training for employees and line managers, advice around communications, mental health first aid training, mental health champions, or addressing some of the other contributing factors such as nutrition, sleep and presenteeism.
First and foremost, it’s about your employees, helping them learn how to recognise, talk and act around mental health.
Helping you look after your employees’ mental wellbeing
The Thriving at Work Report (2017) laid out the mental health journey very well. It said that at any one time, many employees will be thriving, but with frequent movement between thriving, struggling and those who are ill/off work. The challenge is how to manage these complex journeys. Bringing together tailored in-house mental health support, signposting to clinical help, the right triage at the right time, digital support, and employer-purchased Occupational Health or Employee Assistance Programmes can all make a big difference.
Absences due to mental health conditions, such as stress, depression and anxiety, are on the rise3. So it’s no longer enough just having a list of benefits you can offer to affected employees.
Mental health treatment when it’s needed
We’re absolutely committed to supporting the mental health of your workforce and providing treatment when it’s needed. That’s why our corporate health cover includes mental health cover as standard.
Our Stronger Minds pathway makes treatment more accessible too. There’s no need to see a GP – the moment an employee feels the onset of a mental health condition, they can call a trained mental health expert who will assess them and triage, so they get the help they need more quickly.
And as our healthcare teams offer such a comprehensive range of services, we can offer your people a broader range of support. For example, our Occupational Health clinicians can manage cases involving multiple conditions at the same time.
Supporting your business in a crisis
We work with forward-thinking organisations so they have the tools they need to cope if the worst happens. Whether it’s theft or a human disaster, it’s often the human element that has the biggest impact on a good outcome, no matter how solid your business continuity planning. It’s at these times that communication and compassion are critical for your employees. So we’ll help you plan, prepare, react and care when your employees need you most.
