Episode 12 - May 2021 Cheshire Police Federation

    • Careers

The theme of emotional wellbeing isn’t a new one for us, but the purpose of this two-part interview – with a serving inspector from Cheshire Constabulary – is to introduce a contrasting perspective to ones we’ve shared previously.

The question we want to answer is: Are we looking out for our leaders?

Host Andrew Simpson also asks our guest to share her thoughts on the following:

How do the demands on a team leader impact on mental health?

Are inspectors less likely to share their struggles in the workplace?

What is it like to not show your whole self at work each day?

This edition was recorded during Mental Health Awareness Week.

For those that don’t know, this is an annual event – started more than two decades ago by the Mental Health Foundation – that encourages us to start conversations about mental health and the things in our daily lives that can affect it.

Of course, one of those is our relationship with work.
