The summary of evidence provides an overview of the topic area. It provides definitions and common understanding around the topic, the importance of addressing the topic at work, and then a summary of the literature (both practitioner and academic) aimed at addressing the topic at work. Please note that many mental health awareness interventions aim to raise awareness about common mental disorders and stress, and aim to address mental health discrimination. For details on addressing mental health discrimination specifically or information on common mental disorders or stress, please see the separate hub topics.
We have reviewed and summarised some of the strongest academic research on mental health awareness in the workplace. Many studies are systematic reviews and meta-analyses of mental health awareness, summarising the available evidence. All studies included have been published in peer-reviewed journals and draw predominantly from workplace samples.
