Promoting and supporting employee well-being is at the heart of CIPD’s purpose to champion better work and working lives. Good mental health plays an increasingly important part in health and well-being at work, as reported cases of mental health conditions and stress related absences rise.
The CIPD has been working closely with the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together campaign and Mind to end the stigma around the issue and establish Mental Health at Work, a new online gateway to resources, training and information that will change the way we approach mental health in the workplace. It’s funded by The Royal Foundation with Heads Together and developed by Mind and 11 key programme partners from the world of business and mental health, including the CIPD.
According to Mind, employers want to make mental health a priority but a third don’t know where to go for information or guidance. For more information visit the links above.
