How do I know if one of my team needs psychological support?
When someone is psychologically unwell, it is other people who tend to notice it before they do. It might be that another member of staff reports that the employee doesn’t seem to be themselves or they might report it to a mental health first aider. At that point, the mental health first aider should refer the individual to a psychological professional to establish whether they require professional intervention. As an employer, you might request that all of your employees speak to a psychologist once a month, quarter or year as part of their role. In which case, the psychologist can assess their state of health. If employers purchase a package of therapeutic hours, employees can self-refer themselves to our service.
