Mind - Helping someone else
It can be really worrying when someone is going through a difficult time. The Mind website has lots of advice to help you support other people - and to look after your own wellbeing too.

MHFA Whole Organisation Approach to Mental Health

Mental Health for Small Workplaces
Small and medium organisations account for 99% of the businesses in the UK. But research shows that, when it comes to mental health, they often fall behind larger organisations.
There are many unique challenges, as well as unique opportunities, that come with working in smaller businesses. Mental Health at Work have put together a toolkit containing a collection of resources designed to help you start making a difference.
Suicide Prevention Toolkit
This Suicide Prevention Toolkit, helps senior leaders, line managers, HR and occupational health professionals identify staff members who may have suicidal feelings and gives practical advice on how to deal with a crisis situation.
Responding to Suicide in the Workplace
Suicidal thoughts are more common than many people think, and there can be unfounded stigma attached to talking about suicide.
Many employers don't have frameworks in place to encourage an environment where people can openly talk to someone about suicide and find ways to seek help.
This CIPD guide addresses this by providing practical advice and guidance for how organisations can educate their workforce and open up the culture to talk about suicide.
Suicide in the Workplace Pack
Whenever there is a suicide the impact this has on family, friends and work colleagues can be immense.
Our Suicide Workplace Pack provides information on support and resources to support yourself and others, should you ever need them.
Hopefully this information will never be needed in your workplace, but just in case, it's important to equip you
for the worst case situation.
