Duty of care is a concept that causes much concern and confusion among senior managers and board members. With all the emphasis on physical safety and security, though, organisations are all too often overlooking the importance of staff wellbeing and resilience. Through audits, training and direct service provision, Open Briefing can help both staff and organisations increase their resilience, and, ultimately, programme more effectively.
On Time to Talk Day, Open Briefing is launching a range of new mental health and psycho-social support (MHPSS) services as part of our mission to protect and strengthen civil society. This includes training in psychological first aid and advice on establishing peer support networks and writing family liaison and staff wellbeing policies, for example.
