Background

Mental health problems in the workplace affect both the safety of people and their overall productivity. A mentally unhealthy workplace fosters poor morale, low engagement and increased human error due to poor decision making.

One in five people will experience a mental health problem in the workplace. This means it is important for the workplace to increase resources to support early intervention and ongoing support for those that experience poor mental health at work.
