STOP TREATING STAFF MENTAL HEALTH AS A DISCIPLINARY ISSUE

Staff who have mental health issues and have been off work should not be given WARNINGS about the time they have had off. Mental health should not be treated as a disciplinary issues. It is bad enough suffering stress, anxiety and depression, but to then be given WARNINGS for it is NOT helpful in any way shape or form to staff well being. A better way would be to have a meeting and discuss fitness to walk in a non WARNING way.

There is a much greater awareness of the need to support colleagues with mental health problems. It can happen to all of us. Keen to learn from good practice.
