Early intervention in workplace mental health refers to identifying and supporting people with early signs or symptoms of a mental health issue in a timely manner.
Catching mental health issues early can have a strong, positive impact on outcomes. Just as routine checkups and screenings can help employees prevent physical illness and increase their chances of recovery, early intervention and treatment helps build resilience and prevent mental health problems from worsening.
StressLeaders and managers must have proper awareness training to spot the early signs and symptoms of mental ill health in staff, whether they are in the office or working remotely. Managers also need to be trained to initiate difficult conversations around mental health.
The nilo.health program “Talking about mental health at work” gives leaders and managers valuable advice on recognizing the signs of mental health struggle, reaching out to employees when there is cause for concern and responding appropriately when approached by an employee. Additionally, programs such as “Address your stress” and “Fix your work-life balance” help educate your workforce on early intervention practices and focus on wellness.
One-on-one psychological support and webinars and group sessions on critical topics, such as mental health hygiene and self-care while supporting others, round out the offering.
