Occupational Mental Health Advisor
Sickness Absence Assessments and Advice
This includes a full occupational mental health assessment, which would take a minimum of 1 hour. I would then provide a completed report, covering all of the issues raised in the referral information. If required, I can also meet with the manager/HR/employee to discuss the report in more detail.
This could be used as a follow on from a sickness absence assessment, or as a “stand alone” intervention. An assessment of the employees level of functioning, and the work situation would be completed. A rehabilitation plan would then be provided and I would liaise with all key stakeholders, which could include the employee, the manager, HR, other OH professionals and the GP. My aim would then be to support the employee back to work in a safe and sustainable manner. A case closure summary would then be provided.
This is a lower intensity intervention and is suitable those employees who may be experiencing difficulties with stress, anxiety or depression, but who are not absent from work. This intervention is designed to enable individuals to identify their issues, increase their awareness of why and how this has become a problem, and to identify solutions.
Training & Development
I am a qualified organisational trainer and he can provide training to groups or individuals on:
- Mental Health Awareness (half day)
- Stress Management (whole day)
Please contact us with your specific requirements for more information.
In the majority of cases the process (screening of referral, completed assessment and report would normally take 2-2.5hrs). There would be an additional charge if a case conference was requested.
