We’ve already helped 10,000 people to stay in work through the Government’s Workplace Mental Health Support Service and can support you too. This major milestone coincided with the recent Time to Talk Day – a day to bring the nation together to get talking and break the silence and stigma around mental health. 

With one in four people experiencing a mental health problem every year, it’s so important to address the taboo that still exists in society today around mental health.
 
This free and confidential service is delivered by Remploy on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions, supporting individuals with depression, anxiety, stress or other mental health conditions affecting their work, as well as those who are absent from work. Over 93 per cent of people who have accessed this service have successfully remained in work.

Our support is personalised over six months and includes:

  • Coping strategies
  • A tailored work plan detailing the steps needed for you to remain in, or return to work
  • Advice and guidance to allow your employer to fully understand mental health and the best way to support you (with your permission).

Gareth Parry, Remploy’s Chief Executive says: “Talking is really key for anyone struggling with their mental health and it’s an important part of dealing with their condition. Having experienced my own mental health challenges, I understand how difficult it can be for people to open up about their mental health. But, talking to friends, family or seeking specialist and confidential support from organisations like Remploy, can really help.”

If you’d like our help, simply get in touch today by calling us on 0300 456 8114, or visit www.remploy.co.uk/mentalhealth.
