Time To Talk: Accessing FREE tools and resources to support employee wellbeing
Employee wellbeing is a key priority for businesses and HR teams across Scotland – but we know that employees continue to face barriers when it comes to opening up about their mental health. It’s on employers to create the conditions to support those conversations, and tackle the stigma that still exists.
See Me, Scotland’s programme to end mental health stigma and discrimination, has a wide range of free-to-access tools and resources to help make that change.
Boost your understanding
Engaging in development opportunities is an important part of anyone’s working life, and See Me’s programme of free webinars and learning events is worth checking out. Upcoming events include a session on using the popular Time to Talk Day campaign in your workplace to open up conversations, and a session on mental health inclusion in the workplace for leaders.
See Me’s self-assessment toolkit provides a framework that enables you to take stock of your organisation’s efforts around mental health, and what you’re doing to take action against mental health stigma and discrimination.
The free e-Learning is a great addition to any organisation’s staff training offer. The web-based course offers insight into what mental health stigma and discrimination look like in the workplace. Using dramas and real life experiences, you’ll learn more about rights and good practice at every stage of employee working life: recruitment, in work and return to work.
The Let’s Chat tool is a must-read for line managers, offering advice on preparing for and having supportive conversations around mental health.
A whole-organisation approach
Employee wellbeing should be high on every employer’s agenda. If you are already on it and you want to make even more of a commitment to continuous improvement, See Me’s See Me in Work portal is for you. The free-to-access web tool takes you through a four-stage process, identifying what you’re doing well and what needs improvement, before offering ideas for action you can take going forward.
Whether you’re looking to start small or make longer-lasting change in your organisation, you can access even more tools, resources and inspiration over on the See Me website – seemescotland.org/workplace
