The influence of employers
An employer's approach to mental health can
have a big impact on the wellbeing of their employees - in
particular those experiencing psychosis.
Our new film - part of our Don't Ignore Your Mental Health
(DIYMH) focus on psychosis - looks at the role employers can
play in helping members of their teams to overcome psychosis and
other mental health problems, and how they can keep them in, or
help them to return to, work.
We feature two local employers, Decent Group and Organic Blooms,
and we hear from two members of our South Gloucestershire recovery
team: occupational therapist Hayet Laverack and vocational lead
The film,Psychosis: how employers can help, is available on the
focus on psychosis 'resources' tab at www.diymh.com along with the
accompanying Psychosis: tips for employers sheet from Paul
Broadhead, which provides further advice about the positive role
employers can play.
The film is also on AWP's Youtube channel - subscribe to find out first
about all our future films.
