Mental health resources

Our mental health can be affected by a number of factors including our working environment. Likewise, our patients may have mental health problems regardless of the setting in which we come into contact with them.”

This page brings together some key resources to assist CSP members to support themselves, their colleagues and patients.

Introduction to mental health

The Mental Health in a Diverse Workplace presentation was given at the joint Diversity Network study day on May 15th 2017 It outlines common mental health diagnoses and current treatment.

In this Frontline article a CSP member talks about his experience of the impact of bipolar disorder in the workplace.

Rights at work

The law protects workers from disability discrimination. This presentation outlines the definition of disability and your rights at work.

If you are disabled your employer has a legal obligation to make reasonable adjustments for you in the workplace. See a short CSP video on reasonable adjustments.

We know members are struggling to cope with high workloads, reduced resources and support during these difficult times. The impact of constant change and reorganisation in the workplace is also taking its toll.

Check out the resources on the CSP’s Pinpoint the Pressure campaign to see how you can tackle high workloads and make positive changes.

If work or university is making you unwell you should speak to your CSP steward, safety rep or student rep. If you do not know who your rep is please call the CSP Enquiries team on 020 7306 6666.
