Mental Health and Stress Management

Stress and Mental Health problems are a major cause of sickness absence, low morale and poor productivity. The HSE estimated that 13.8 million working days lost in 2006/7 were due to work-related stress, depression and anxiety.  Employees suffering from stress are also more likely to suffer from depression and other psychosomatic complaints.

Stress Management

Independent Occupational Health Advisors can assist you in fulfilling your legislative duty in the management of stress within your organisation. This can be done through the provision of Stress Audits, Individual Assessments, Post Incident Support and Stress Awareness Training.

Stress Management Programmes can be organised to take place at your business and can be tailored to meet the demands on your employees and the pressures within your industry.

Occupational Psychiatry

Where a mental health issue has been identified the workplace may be the cause of future incidents of distress and can have a direct impact on the recovery of the individual. Mental Health problems associated with the workplace can lead to cases of medium to long-term sickness absence. The longer an employee is away from the workplace, the less chance there is of ensuring a successful return to work.

In the provision of Occupational Psychiatry mental health problems may be managed correctly and in some cases, prevented. The expertise of a psychiatric assessment provides firm advice on the management of psychiatric illness for the employee within their specific work environment. This can assist in reducing incidents of conflict, ease symptoms and promote a healthy recovery.
