One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health condition this year according to Mind. Given these statistics it is very likely that you, as a line manager will, at some point, manage an individual with a mental health condition in your team and it is essential that you are able to support them.
This briefing explores the concept of mental health and provides practical guidance to managers who are dealing with an employee who may be struggling with mental health issues.
