Covid-19 and Mental Health at Work
29th January 2021
Our working lives have been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Working from home, being placed on furlough or still needing to leave home to go to work have all led to change, uncertainty and new challenges for us all. And feelings of isolation, anxiety and stress are all now commonplace among employees.
So, now, more than ever, safeguarding the mental wellbeing of the workforce is crucial.

At Central Occupational Health, we continue to deliver a full range of mental health support services.
Delivered by our Mental Health Practitioners, these services are designed to help and support employers and their staff, and are able to be provided by remote means to maintain frequent contact and high levels of care during the pandemic.
Video and telephone consultations direct with employees can assess, treat and manage mental ill health conditions, and ensure exactly the right support is available to help deal with and overcome any issues being experienced.
Where necessary, face to face consultations conducted in a Covid Secure manner can also be arranged with employees.
Employers have a duty of care to help and support employees experiencing mental health conditions.
Additional support may be required for employees with long standing conditions, and new pathways of care may need to be implemented for those who have experienced mental health issues for the first time during the pandemic.
At Central Occupational Health we’re working hard to help and support employers and employees right now, so that mental health conditions don’t become overwhelming and good mental wellbeing in the workplace is being maintained during the Covid-19 pandemic.
