Why did SWR develop mental health support services for their employees?

SWR provides an employee assistance programme (EAP) to all their staff, as well as other mental health support. SWR understood that proper access to mental health services reduces the risk of ongoing mental health issues and associated physical health issues. SWR also knew that access to these types of services can save lives by helping people to take positive steps for their own recovery. 

What support services do SWR provide for their employees?

SWR provide a range of different types of services for their employees: an employee assistance programme, mental health first aiders, trauma risk management practitioners, and a regular Men’s Shed talk.
