Today marks the second day of Mental Health Awareness Week.
During the pandemic millions of us have experienced a mental health problem or seen someone close to us struggle. More often than not, the support we all need to overcome any issues we’re experiencing simply isn’t out there.
We know that the last 12-months has been a particularly turbulent time for teachers and support staff within schools, and many have struggled to manage their mental health amidst so much uncertainty.
As a company we have led the way in providing schools with the resources they need to keep their employees healthy and happy at work, and we will continue to do so in 2021 and beyond.
That’s because taking out a staff absence insurance policy with us entitles all insured members of staff to a range of support services designed to promote good mental health, such as:
- Anxiety management service
- Mental health first aid training
- Emergency 24-hour mental health support service
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- Lifestyle health screening
- Healthy living workshops
- Stress awareness sessions
These services are an excellent way to support your staff with protecting and maintaining their mental wellbeing. Plus, they are included at no additional cost to your employees or your school’s insurance policy.
So, whether a member of staff is struggling with the effects of quarantine or has anxiety around a return to normal life as restrictions are lifted, we’re here to help! Please contact our team by calling us on 0800 862 0077 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
