It is our mission to be at the forefront of the advancement of mental health and preventing lives being lost to suicide.
Most of us will spend a third of our lives at work, so it’s important that workplaces are psychologically safe environments, where mental health and employee wellbeing are seen as core business issues.
Most people who take their lives each year are employed. In a supportive workplace environment, the involvement of leaders, managers and all employees is an important component in suicide prevention.
For this part of our Zero Suicide strategy, our actions are specifically aimed at engaging with companies and organisations of all sizes. We aim to continually raise awareness of what actions employers and managers can undertake to improve the wellbeing of their employees and reduce the risk of suicide.
We will collaborate with others providing mental health and suicide prevention support in workplaces to identify and share what is working well, so that others may learn from these initiatives and implement similar approaches.
We will design and run events, workshops, conferences and educational talks which will raise awareness and also provide practical guidance so that everyone understands how to create and sustain a psychologically safe workplace, where the organisation and its employees can thrive.
