Mental Health and Wellbeing Toolkits Support Package available for CW&C Businesses

Equipping and empowering leaders to build a happy and productive workforce and a culture that promotes positive wellbeing.

We all know the benefits that investing in employee wellbeing is likely to bring such as reduced sickness, presenteeism and turnover levels, and increased employee morale and productivity. It makes good business sense to invest in workplace wellbeing so that it’s more than just a series of standalone training events. So, companies should start to embrace a whole organisational approach to wellbeing where everyone can bring their whole self to work. 

The CWAC toolkits for SMEs will provide the opportunity to access a bespoke package of support to help businesses to develop and implement their own Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

Wellbeing 4 Performance has been commissioned by CWAC to support you to develop a vision for your wellbeing strategy that’s aligned with your company goals.

Webinar 1: Understanding mental health and wellbeing at work 

20 April 2022 10:00-11:45
1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

Prevention and early intervention are the most effective ways to support workforce mental health, rather than tackling problems after they arise. The steps needed to encourage this cultural shift are, in the majority of cases, simple, but they need to be driven at a senior level to help implement lasting change. This webinar will explain the importance of workplace wellbeing and the roles that leaders can play including:

  • Mental health and its impact on the workplace
  • Understanding key terms and different challenges
  • Making a commitment to mental health
  • Appointing Mental Health Champions
  • Engaging for success with employees

Webinar 2: Building your organisation’s mental health and wellbeing strategy

26 April 2022 14:00-15:45
1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

Putting plans in place isn’t just a good thing to do; it helps ensure you are following your legal obligations as an employer. It is important to understand the law and ensure you are compliant. This webinar will help you to understand the legal requirements and identify the priorities for business so that you can set meaningful goals which can then be put into a plan and will include:

  • Understanding your legal obligations
  • Your role as an employer and your duty of care
  • Assessing the mental health needs of your employees
  • Updating your policies and plans
  • Reviewing and monitoring progress

Webinar 3: Creating a positive workplace wellbeing culture

3 May 2022 10:00-11:45
1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

A workplace environment and working culture that promotes wellbeing can reduce the risk of mental health problems. This is reinforced by cultivating an open, supportive organisation where people understand the importance of wellbeing and feel able to talk about physical and mental health. This webinar will cover many of the factors which are needed to promote a culture of mental health and wellbeing and will include:

  • How to promote health and wellbeing at work
  • Managing stress in the workplace
  • Reviewing job roles and responsibilities
  • Embedding the five ways to wellbeing
  • Keeping communication consultative and inclusive

Webinar 4: Support and Training for line managers

12 May 2022 10:00-11:45
1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

To implement your approach to mental health, it is important to have structures in place that allow for information on mental health to be shared with all, for feedback to be passed back up to the top and for everyone to feel there is a structure in place that will promote their health and protect them if they become unwell. This webinar will provide advice to ensure that you have the right structures and training in place to support Mental Health and Wellbeing and will include:

  • The importance of training and support 
  • The vital role of managers and leaders
  • Mental health and wellbeing training 
  • Creating a wellbeing induction
  • Including wellbeing in performance reviews

Webinar 5: Managing mental health at work

17 May 2022 10:00-11:45
1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

Making sure everyone can talk about mental health is an important step your business can take to help people manage it. Much progress has been made in reducing the stigma of mental health, but we still need to do more. Despite many employees feeling their employer or line manager would be supportive if they shared a mental health issue, a significantly smaller number of people do disclose concerns. This webinar will explore the best ways to adopt a progressive approach to mental health and will include:

  • Taking a proactive approach 
  • Creating the right environment to discuss mental health and common problems
  • Improving open communication and reducing stigma
  • Identifying areas of risk
  • Adopting the HSE management standards

Webinar 6: Providing the right support

26 May 2022 10:00-11:45
1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

The areas covered in the previous webinars in this series will help to promote the positive mental health of your employees. But even the most supportive workplaces can’t prevent some people from experiencing mental health issues. Just as some people experience physical ill health, some will experience mental ill-health. This webinar will discuss steps that you take to make sure you are engaged and ready to provide support when it is needed and will include:

  • Spotting signs of distress and having sensitive conversations
  • Signposting individuals to the right support
  • Making reasonable adjustments
  • Creating a supportive environment
  • Providing confidential support

Webinar 7: Helping people recover

31 May 2022 10:00-11:45
1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

Sometimes employees who experience mental health problems will need to take time off work to get better. Employers should provide the support people need while they’re off sick and, on their return, to work. Adopting supportive policies will help you to reduce sick leave, retain valued employees and meet your legal obligations. This webinar will highlight the importance of taking a fair and consistent approach and will include:

  • Managing absence from work
  • Tips for managers when an employee is on sick leave
  • Preparing for an employee’s return to work
  • Return to work plan and access to work

1x hour session + 45 Min Toolkit Clinic

Achieving excellence in mental health may take time but investing time in the ongoing development of your approach will produce many rewards. Excellence means happier, healthier staff with greater productivity, morale and staff retention, and reduced absence. It means mental health and physical health being managed effectively and positively, as equals. This webinar will cover best practices and will include:

  • Consulting with your staff
  • Identifying areas of improvement 
  • Feedback to your staff
  • Regularly evaluate your approach
  • Sharing best practice
