Recently some of the Interserve West Mids site management have undertaken basic online training courses to better understand and appreciate the issues, manifested symptoms and impacts of mental health issues such as depression and burnout.
We all work in a high pressure, success driven environment and it is very easy for the workforce to push themselves to the limit.
I myself did a simple course online that took about 3 hours to complete to better understand and spot depression/ burnout, this doesn’t make me a psychologist, but if I encounter this issue in others, I would be comfortable in discussing the matter with them in a hope to guide/ direct them to a GP or other help.
Failing that, we could be the person that sits down and allows them to talk to someone and start the ball rolling to wellness.
