Small Business Guide to Supporting Mental Health at Work

The small business guide to supporting employee mental health at work

9 May 2022

We all feel overwhelmed by things at times. Whether they’re work-related stresses, or worries in our personal lives, these everyday stresses can come and go with little or no intervention. 

However, when one of your team is experiencing stress, anxiety or depression it can affect all aspects of their wellbeing. And this can have a big impact on your business too.

In our small business guide, Eugene Farrell, Mental Health Lead at AXA Health, shares his tips and advice for how small business owners can support mental health at work. Topics include:

  • What are the signs that someone in my team may be experiencing mental health problems?
  • How do I have a conversation with one of my employees about their mental health?
  • How can I support a member of my team who is experiencing a mental health problem?
  • How can I look after my own mental health, and encourage a wellbeing culture?

Simple, fast access to mental health treatment 

Our Mental Health cover option can help to show your business commitment to supporting mental health, whether your team needs counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), or care in a private hospital (cover may be subject to medical history). 

Plus, you can rest assured that your team can start receiving help as quickly as possible. They may not need to take time out of their day in order to get a GP referral. Our Stronger Minds team can book an appointment with a counsellor or psychologist who will listen to their concerns and guide them to the right support. If therapy is recommended, our Stronger Minds team will source a therapist for you.1
