Mental Wellbeing

Branch One
For many of us in the workplace right now we have little education about mental health. In the past it wasn’t something that was covered in schools, and unless someone has specifically taken a course to educate themselves, knowledge is often limited.
This can lead to assumptions being made about particular illnesses, such as how it may or may not affect someone in work. Equally when we talk about building and promoting good wellbeing, very often people don’t know where to start. Or they don’t realise that some of the things they do, such as hobbies, are actually proactive wellbeing. The challenge then lies with continuing with that hobby, for example, should their wellbeing take a dip – this could impact mood, tolerance of others, and ultimately their relationships both in and outside of work.

THE BENEFITS

By providing education and best practice around
mental health and wellbeing, people gain an understanding of what they can do to be proactive around their own mental health, whilst also supporting promotion of this throughout the workplace.
Managers equipped with education and the right tools can have really supportive conversations with those who may be struggling. They will also have an awareness of the signs of deteriorating mental health to enable them to provide the right support to that individual much sooner, whilst also being able to help them effectively going forwards.

Social Wellbeing

As humans we are wired for connection. And therefore, social interaction is essential for us to function, and sustain good wellbeing. We are all different and we will each personally have different requirements around social wellbeing.

Physical Wellbeing

Physical wellbeing is about how we look after our physical self. This is everything from keeping active, to feeding our bodies the right nutrients, through to getting the right amount of sleep. Physical wellbeing has a direct impact on our mental health.

Financial Wellbeing

Financial wellbeing is the peace of mind around financial plans. Some people may not yet be financially stable but with a plan in place they can reach stability. It could be that a person needs plans to realise their financial goals to get them back on track.
