The Octrac Consultancy Advantage
As Mental health Practitioners, we have been asked several times to assess people who have had mental health breakdown while on duty. In all cases, employers were not sure about legal issues, confidentiality and even their duties and responsibility towards staff suffering from mental health issues. Mental health training within organisations helps managers and supervisors identify mental illness, give first aid before staff is seen by a specialist mental health services worker.
Octrac Consulting aims to raise mental health awareness within organisations. Once organisations have a better understanding of mental health, they will have the capacity to establish policies which tackle stigma and encourage employees to open up about their mental health issues.
Our Mental health training within organisations helps supervisors to identify symptoms of mental illness, provide mental health first aid and sign post people where they can get specialist mental health services.
