Message from Metro Mayor, Steve Rotheram
This has been a hugely challenging period that we know is taking a damaging toll on people’s mental health and wellbeing, as we cope with further lockdown restrictions and rising infection rates.
We know that things have been particularly hard for essential workers in healthcare, retail and logistics, but this is something that affects everyone.
Ensuring good mental health at work is good for both employees and employers, boosting job satisfaction, retention and productivity. It is a key part of the decent working conditions we should all expect and will be at the heart of our Fair Employment Charter, which we plan to launch shortly.
I’d encourage employers across the Liverpool City Region to take advantage of the range of resources that are out there. I have done both the Mental Health First Aid Training and the Zero Suicide Alliance online training and can vouch for how useful these courses are.
