A stepped approach to the promotion of mental health and wellbeing is recommended, whether you are considering staff, resident wellbeing or both. Not everyone will require signposting to specialist mental health services, and input at an early stage can often prevent later mental health distress.
Non-mental health organisations have a big part to play in the promotion of mental health and wellbeing. This section of the website focuses on what you can do to support others, as a non-mental health organisation.
The model below provides a guide for you to plan and structure your organisation’s response to mental health and wellbeing. This model may help you identify areas of strength in your organisation, and also areas to focus on. On this page you’ll find a description of each step, suggested actions at each level, and links to recommended signposting and resources.
The Framework for Action has been developed to support non-mental health organisations to promote mental health and wellbeing in Derby and Derbyshire. The framework is relevant for any organisations that are supporting others right now – including staff, volunteers, or residents.
