Workplace mental health

Whether we like it or not, most of us spend many hours a week at work. It’s a huge part of our lives, and it’s vital that while we’re working we’re happy and healthy.

You have a duty to yourself to look after your own mental health at work. If you’re a manager, you may also be responsible for looking out for the wellbeing of others.

Here you’ll find a wealth of information and advice to help you be more aware of your own workplace mental health, and that of your colleagues. There are also practical steps that you can take to make your workplace a more supportive place to work for those with mental health problems.

You’ll find some quotes from real people, around their experiences – good and bad – of managing mental health in the workplace.
