Promoting mental health in the workplace. Guidance to implementing a comprehensive approach (2014)

The aim of this document is to provide guidance to a range of stakeholders on how to manage mental health issues in the workplace.  The guidance is a combination of literature from health and safety, health promotion, reintegration and recruitment.  It is hoped that the guidance can be used to help shape policy and practice in the workplace.

Thriving at work The Stevenson/Farmer review of mental health and employers (2017)

This independent review examines how employers can better support the mental health of everyone in employment to remain in and thrive through work.  There are many costs of poor mental health including the large annual cost to employers of between £33 billion and £42 billion.  The report synthesises a range of data from a broad variety of sources and covers, but is not limited to, the costs, recommendations for employers, recommendations for the government and recommendations for the public sector. Crucially, the report introduces six “mental health core standards” for employers which is a framework that the authors believe organisations in the country are capable of implementing quickly.
