Call for better support of staff with mental-health problems

The TUC has published guidance to help employers and unions support people with mental-health problems at work.

Produced with consultancy, Disability Forward, the report, ‘Representing and supporting members with mental-health problems at work’, urges unions to work with employers to encourage job applications from people with mental-health issues.

It also says individuals should be encouraged to disclose any mental-health problems they may have.

The report can be downloaded in PDF format from the link below.

What makes us susceptible to burnout?

In this episode  of the Safety & Health Podcast, ‘Burnout, stress and being human’, Heather Beach is joined by Stacy Thomson to discuss burnout, perfectionism and how to deal with burnout as an individual, as management and as an organisation.

We provide an insight on how to tackle burnout and why mental health is such a taboo subject, particularly in the workplace.
