Network Rail were launching a campaign to communicate Mental Wellness to their business. Their goal was to bring understanding to mental wellbeing and its importance, while educating their audience to be aware of the potential signs and symptoms of someone suffering with their mental health.
Network Rail recognised that their managers needed training in having better conversations with their direct reports around mental health. This example shows a bad approach. A key message here was that in a situation like this good intentions are not enough. Later in the course after they’ve been armed with better ways to handle things they see the same situation played out in a much more positive way
The main theme that we wanted to convey in this film is that people, no matter what impairments they might have are still people and should be treated as such.
With the addition of a message from David Oldfield the Executive Sponsor for Disability within Lloyds Banking Group and the individual specific impairment films, hearing from Lloyds employees and customers with Visual, Mobility, Hearing, Unseen and mental Health impairments we hoped to give helpful practical advice on how to treat everyone individually.
