The 3 Challenges of a Leader Supporting Mental Health:

The 3 core challenges we experience as Leaders when facing a mental health situation are that we feel underprepared, under qualified, and under stress.

  1. Underprepared because we never seem to know when it’s going to happen or what the early warning signs maybe.
  2. Under qualified, because we feel we haven’t been trained adequately of supported fully enough to deal with these events.
  3. Under stress to get it right and not make it worse and feel pressured to do something even though we’re feeling the first 2 things in this list.

Our intention here at MBM is to help you start the conversation in the right way and then keep connecting you with an ever-expanding library of short-video resources that will keep supporting you at every juncture of your experience when working in this space.
And no, it’s not easy, at the same time it’s very necessary and as the Leader, it’s time to do what you’re good at; Lead.

Provide a Space within the team, where people feel empowered to come to you so they can discuss how they’re feeling. Actively ask them into your space and notice your people.

Face the Problem

Ross Hardy – Crisis Negotiator:

Head-on, be direct and give them permission to share their feelings. Don’t beat around the bush and talk around an issue. Help people to express how they’re feeling and seek to understand them.

Be Gentle

Tom Fortes Mayer – Founder of Rapid Change Therapy and the ‘FreeMind’ app:

Remember it’s not meant to be easy, struggle is part of what makes us grow. It’s how we develop; Life is a character Gymnasium.  We don’t lift bars without weight, we need the weight and challenge to grow our capabilities. As leaders, we need to bring a new level of compassion and tenderness to our teams.

Make Yourself Aware of the Signs

Steve Loft – mental health educator, public speaker, campaigner, and also co-founder of WellMent:

Looking for changes in character that seem out of place. For instance, people that are normally punctual suddenly arrive late, people that were smart become untidy and have the conversations, approach it gently.

Care for Everyone

Anthony Tailor – Helping managers use mental toughness to improve performance:

It’s natural as Humans that we are drawn to specific individuals in our workspaces. As leaders though we need to become aware of those biases and make sure we are casting a caring eye over the whole group, not just a select few.

Get the Conversation Starter

Peter Larkum:

Don’t be afraid to start the conversation, if you know something is wrong, someone feels ‘prickly’ start the conversation. Also let people know how you feel there are people around you, as the Leader, that you can share with and get support from your own team as well as your peers.
