MHScot is developing a service where we can offer external, impartial, neutral and open-minded support and supervision.
Instances where this works really well is:
- An employee experiencing stress and/or mental health difficulties requires additional support that a line manager is unable to provide; time restraints, or lack of knowledge of personal difficulties
- Employees can feel more comfortable speaking open and honestly to someone from outside their working environment
- Existing line managing staff do not need additional training in relation to mental health and wellbeing
- It can compliment line management staff that have had training, but require specific input from a mental health and wellbeing professionala
