Psychological support is a type of therapy in which someone seeks, with the help and guidance of a psychologist, to express their problems and anxieties in an effort to identify the causes and find solutions for discomfort and suffering.
Outside of a clinical setting, psychological support, also called emotional support, is when one person supports another by acknowledging their mental health needs, offering reassurance and listening without making judgments or assumptions.
When expert psychological support is made available, employees experiencing psychological distress will be more likely to seek out and receive appropriate help. Employees who receive psychological support through their workplace are more involved and satisfied with their workplace, as well as happier, more productive and committed to staying on for the long-term.
In contrast, employees without the option to receive psychological support are more likely to withdraw from work and have higher absenteeism rates. Conflict and turnover are more likely, and work stress may lead to physical symptoms (fatigue, headaches) or emotional symptoms (anxiety, burnout), with the associated costs.
