Spotlight on Local Mental Wellbeing Practice: From Industry-Wide Implementation to Local Innovation
RSSB has launched a new Mental Wellbeing Programme for the rail industry. CEO Mark Phillips introduces a new series of regular features sharing the innovative ways members are implementing this Programme to meet local needs and the impacts that are being seen.
Rail is a diverse industry, and its people even more so. What makes good practice in one area can look different in another, particularly when we are dealing with human beings. When speaking to members about mental wellbeing initiatives, it is common to hear ‘that won’t work here’. It is important to go beyond trying to create a one size fits all programme. A programme needs to be adaptable to the nuances of individual companies.
