Preventing suicide at work: information for employers, managers and employees


Being at work can be good for mental
health, but the increasing pressures of work can be stressful. A difficult work
environment or ongoing work-related stresses can worsen the mental health of
employees. In some circumstances they may take their own lives. But suicide is
never the answer. There is always hope. Employers and managers have an important
role to play in looking out for the mental health of their staff. They can
help create a culture where people feel safe to talk about their mental health
and to seek help. Employers can help their staff to feel supported with their
mental health, which is good for staff and good for employers. A few words can
make a world of difference.

  • My life has consisted of NO HOPE.
    I blame society's deliberate neglect.
    Some of us have been ghosted no matter what we try or do.

  • Between home and work, things have gotten too much for me to deal with. I’ve tried reaching out, only to be ignored or told to think positively. Everyone hates me, I’m doing horribly at work, I don’t have any friends, family or anything. I have to keep lying, saying “I’m fine” when I’m not. I think people that say “I’m here for you” is something they say to make themselves feel better. There’s no sincerity behind it.
