Revive at Sheffield Mind: Supporting Mental Health in the workplace

8th February 2024

Sheffield Mind’s Revive therapy service offers a 50-minute (one-off or regular) session with one of our therapists. The sessions offer a confidential space where staff member can look at stress and resilience, depression & anxiety, and family issues.

Work can be challenging and stressful, whether that’s because of long workhours, challenging staff, or productivity problems.

When you’re dealing with these issues, it can be difficult to put your own needs first and that’s why many people fail to prioritise self care and indeed put the needs of others before themselves.

The danger with this approach is that when stress builds up over time, the likelihood of burnout increases and the risk of losing a committed and knowledgeable staff member can also rise.

It stops at the top. Senior managers tend to be a mirror for the rest of the organisation, staff look to them for guidance and a steer. If management staff are stressed, anxious and finding it increasingly difficult to make decisions, this can have a negative impact on all staff.

Talking about issues, in a space where you feel you have time to express yourself and you feel you’re being listened to, is a great first step towards resolving the problem.

That’s where we come in!

Sheffield Mind’s Revive therapy service offers a 50-minute (one-off or regular) session with one of our therapists. The sessions offer a confidential space where staff member can look at stress and resilience, depression & anxiety, family issues – anything that’s impacting on their working life.

Organisations can use Revive as a ‘prevention service’: senior leaders can schedule a regular meeting with one of our therapists throughout the year, to ensure they have an outlet for discussing any stressful aspects of their role, counselling sessions can be provided to help staff manage effective work/life balance and our training programme can be adapted to suit the size of a business and also the sector in which it operates.

All proceeds from Revive services are invested in Sheffield Mind, helping us to build capacity and ensure that our free services are accessible to all that need them. We provide a range of additional support services including help for people who hoard, community peer support, confidence and life skills training and a range of therapeutic interventions. For more details about the work we do, call the office on 0114 258 4489 or visit the website at www.sheffieldmind.co.uk

Mental health issues affect one in four people and we are working hard to develop services that will support the needs of the local business community and to ensure that we generate adequate funding to sustain service delivery.
