Support from people at work

Some young people seek support from someone they trust at work like a manager, union representative, counsellor provided by their employer, or their HR department. 

  • How likely are you to seek mental health support from someone at your work? If so, who are you most likely to talk to?
  • If you have spoken to someone at your work, what has been your experience of that?
  • What improvements do you think could be made?

Why the contribution is important

It is important for us to learn about your experiences and ideas for improvements so we can make it easier for young people to get mental health support from people at their place of work.

    I remember starting my first job I was still under CAMHS and started on medication. As part of the pre-employment checks I had to go and see occupational health. The minute I mentioned mental health they weren't understanding and had said that they weren't deeming me fit until I seen a doctor which held the process up by six weeks. I then saw the doctor who after five minutes didn't see why she had to see me and passed me fit to start my job. I find occupational health need to be more understanding and better training needs to be provided on issues that can affect our mental health like chronic illness or bereavement for example.
