Red card treatment How to start mental health help
In many sports, a red card is punishment for bad behaviour. Legal and General are using its symbolism to help lift the mental health taboo and to encourage more conversations in the workplace about it.
Initiating a conversation may seem daunting, but try to follow these steps: Choose a colleague you feel comfortable talking to. Invite them for a coffee or go somewhere private for a chat where you will feel comfortable. Tell them you want to discuss something sensitive to assist in getting the conversation started later and allow them to prepare themselves. Before the meeting, write down what you want to say in bullet points. Talk about what could/ should happen next and how your colleague might be able to support you.
