We have selected some of the strongest academic research regarding interventions to address and prevent mental health discrimination and stigma at work. All studies have been published in peer-reviewed journals and are presented under three headings: Organisational Interventions, Manager Interventions and Individual Interventions. There has been a lot of research into preventing mental health discrimination in the public, but a lot less research exists that focuses specifically on the workplace. Campaigns such as Time to Change have been very popular and research suggests they have positive effects. Mental Health First Aid is one of the leading interventions to tackle stigma and consists of a 12 hour 2 day training programme which aims to educate the public about how to react to individuals who are either suffering from a mental health crisis or are experiencing the development of a mental health problem.
This section only provides academic evidence relevant to discrimination and stigma around mental health. Academic evidence relating to Common Mental Problems is provided in a separate topic within the Hub, for more information on ‘Common Mental Health Problems’, please click here.
