Some of the strongest practitioner evidence regarding interventions to prevent and address mental health discrimination and stigma at work has been summarised below. These are empirical studies or work of publishable quality. 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.
This section only provides practitioner evidence relevant to discrimination and stigma around mental health. Practitioner evidence relating to Common Mental Health problems is provided in a separate topic within the Hub, for more information on ‘Common Mental Health Problems’, please click here.
