The influence of employers

FOP4An 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 Paul Broadhead.

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.
