If the answer is yes, then you may wish to consider Aware’s Wellness @Work programmes

Aware offers a suite of workplace wellness programmes to respond to the increased need for mental health awareness and resilience development within the workplace.

These programmes have been developed under the guidance of Aware’s clinical team and they aim to:

1.  Help employees understand the importance and value of looking after their mental health, and to use relevant coping skills to limit the impact of any challenges or concerns.

2.  Help managers learn skills and identify strategies for assisting employees who are dealing with challenges, with a view to minimising the impact of these issues on the individual, colleagues and the workplace generally. Educate managers on current employment legislation and best practice for effectively managing mental health issues in the workplace.

3. Gain awareness of the early warning signs of mental health problems and increase the opportunity to refer people to early support and intervention as required.

All programmes incorporate key skills based on principles of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and are delivered by professional trainers, all of whom have received extensive initial and ongoing training from Aware.
