"I'm quite prone to stress at work. And if I'm feeling down this makes it worse. But I can keep a handle on this with a little bit of support. And this support is probably less onerous than many employers would think. Small, very simple things can make a big difference."
Wellness Actions Plans are an easy, practical way of helping you support your own mental health at work. And if you're a manager, allowing you to support the mental health of your team members.
Anyone can complete a Wellness Action Plan. You don't need to have a mental health problem to feel the benefits. Having a plan just means that you have some practical steps in place to make sure you're supported when you aren't feeling great.
We have 3 guides for employees available, which you can fill in electronically:
This is for those of us working in a physical workplace. We've designed it to help you reflect on what supports your mental health and wellbeing at work.
This is for those of us working remotely. Whether that's from home or in a shared workspace. We've designed to help you identify what best supports your mental health and wellbeing whilst working remotely.
This is for those of us who are hybrid working. We've designed it to support people working in a hybrid way - with some days spent in a physical workplace and some days spent working remotely.
We also have a guide for line managers to help you implement Wellness Action Plans across your team and start conversations about mental health. The guide also provides useful information on workplace adjustments and signposting.
