Managing mental health in the workplace

This e-book, produced with employee benefits specialist Unum, looks at how to encourage good mental health in the workplace.

It looks at safeguarding staff wellbeing, addressing problems before they become severe, and supporting staff when issues do emerge. It's not about becoming an expert in mental health - it's about spotting the signs that something might be wrong. It will signpost the right support and resources and offer suggestions for putting strategies in place to support good mental health.

This paper will help you:

  • understand why good mental health matters in the workplace
  • know the role that you and your managers can play in spotting and handling mental health issues at work
  • be aware of medium to long-term actions for improving mental health in the workplaces and how to build awareness of them.
