The report also highlighted that the impact of COVID-19 was apparent, with almost half (48%) of employees feeling that their employer should do more to look after their employees’ mental health during the pandemic.
It is important that employers and their workforce know how to address mental health and wellbeing and support one another and our workplace-based training equips employers and their workforce with the knowledge, skills, and resources to recognise the early signs that someone may be struggling.
Workplace mental health awareness training is a key part of our wish to remove the stigma surrounding mental health and empowering employers and their workforce to feel emotionally and effectively supported with their wellbeing.
Supporting IFGL to improve employee wellbeing
In 2018 IFGL decided to equip its 100 Line Managers, across three sites, with the knowledge and skills with how to effectively support its workforce where early signs of mental health issues might occur. To date, 99% of its managers have now taken part in Isle Listen’s vital mental health and wellbeing training.
As a charitable initiative, we are entirely funded through the generous support of our local community which enables us to continue our vital work in schools, the workplace and community.
Every penny donated helps us to continue our work towards removing the stigma surrounding mental health and support young people.
