COMPANY bosses and employees are being urged to look out for the mental health of their colleagues.

The call has come from campaigners who say there is a significant problem with people not being able to speak openly about their mental health in the workplace.

This, they say, can lead to sufferers feeling like they have nowhere to go if they’re struggling because health problems in many workplaces remains a taboo topic.

The Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC) and the charity See Me have teamed up to offer advice on how business owners and managers can look out for staff.

Eamonn Keane, of SBRC, said: “Given the workplace is where the majority of us spend a great deal of our time, it should be a supportive environment where people look after one another.

“Employee wellbeing is a key element of overall business resilience. For an employer, creating a healthy working environment can be important in ensuring a productive and effective organisation.”
