Health & Safety Executive publishes first aid guidance on mental health

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published updated guidance to help employers support staff experiencing a mental health issue.

The HSE’s updated first aid guidance states companies should consider ways to “manage mental ill health in your workplace which are appropriate for your business”.

According to the guidance, this could include providing information or training for managers and employees, employing occupational health professionals, appointing mental health-trained first aiders and implementing employee support programmes.
