Following an independent review, it has been recommended that all employers, regardless of size or industry, should adopt mental health core standards.
Available as a hardcopy or PDF, this helpful framework is designed to inform the development of a mental health strategy and the implementation of mental health core standards.
Mental health problems affect 1 in 4 adults. We know that mental ill health can have a serious negative impact on the individuals affected, the team in which they work, and the wider organisation in terms of lost productivity and profitability.
Poor mental health is estimated to cost UK employers up to £42 billion each year.
The various legal obligations employers hold in relation to supporting employees experiencing poor mental health are set out in Health and Safety at Work Legislation, Equality Legislation and in Common Law.
In 2017, the Prime Minister requested an independent review into how employers can better support the mental health of all people currently in employment. Within the subsequently published Thriving at Work review, the most important recommendation made was that all employers, regardless of size or industry, should adopt ‘mental health core standards’ that lay basic foundations for an approach to workplace mental health.
