Mental Health in the workplace


Successfully managing mental health and wellbeing issues has many knock-on positive effects which are known to lead to improvements in employee engagement, productivity, organisational culture and absenteeism. Poor mental health on the other hand can be costly.

Looking after employees’ mental wellbeing is a long-term responsibility, and employers should be prepared to adapt and change their approach as the needs of employees change. Our experienced employment lawyers can provide advice on how to support your employees and your duties under the Equality Act 2010.

We are able to offer bespoke mental health and wellbeing training, specific to your organisation’s needs and we can provide additional support from our HR consultancy Forbury People.

An exceptional balance of expertise and personality.”
