Jaan Madan, Head of Client Experience – Mental Health First Aid, England, commented: “This report echoes what we at Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England have seen in recent years in our work with employers.
“Organisations have a greater understanding than ever that the only way to thrive is to support the mental wellbeing of their workforce.
“But while there has been significant progress over recent years, we know there’s scope to do more, and mental health is still not on every employer’s agenda.
“Line managers are the linchpin between senior leaders and the rest of the workforce.
“It is encouraging to see an increasing awareness that employee wellbeing is a core part of a line manager’s responsibility, and a growing recognition of the need for more training around employee mental health.
“But it is vital that line mangers understand how they too benefit from mental health training. By equipping line managers with the skills and confidence to support their own wellbeing as well as that of their teams, we can empower them to excel in their role and build productive, supportive and healthy teams.
“Building a future where wellbeing is part of a manager’s core competencies will also help to create mentally healthy organisations where every employee has access to support to thrive in their work.
“As we continue to strive for equality in how we approach mental health at work, we welcome the findings of this report.
“It is further indication that the workplace is ready for legislative change to bring mental health first aid in line with physical first aid.
“We cannot afford to have a two-tier workforce, with some employers taking strides in supporting the mental wellbeing of their employees, while others are left behind.”
