Able Futures - Access to Work Mental Health Support Service
06 Feb 2020
Able Futures - Access to Work Mental Health Support Service looks to support people who have mental health difficulties which affect them at work.
The downloads below provide full details about the service and how it can be accessed by your staff.
Access to Work Mental Health Support Service could be available if an employee can answer yes to the following questions:
- Are you aged 16 or over?
- Are you in/about to start work?
- Do you live in Great Britain?
- Do you have mental health difficulties that impact upon your work?
We know that mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression mean staff can experience bad days, and stress or bereavement can lead to them struggling at work and feeling unable to cope with everyday tasks. Able Futures is a free and confidential service for those bad days by providing advice, information and support.
Through Able Futures staff can have access to a dedicated person, from outside of the workplace, who will work with them to understand any mental health issues that are affecting their time at work.
Able Futures’ mentors are also trained to provide advice and guidance on where you can access support topics including health management, skills development and financial management.
The service is free and we have attached literature provided to us by Able Futures for you to publicise this service to your staff and share the literature with them.
We in HR have no links with Able Futures, so any contact made by an employee is entirely confidential between the employee and Able Futures.
