Statistics published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), covering the 2020/21 period, show of the 1.7 million workers suffering from a work-related illness, 800,000 were stress, depression or anxiety.
Even before the pandemic took hold, it was estimated that mental health issues cost UK employers up to £45 billion a year.
Whether you’re a small business or a large corporation, the law requires all employers to prevent work related stress to promote, support and sustain good mental health in the workplace.
The Working Minds campaign brings together a range of tools and support to help businesses and workers understand the best ways to prevent work related stress and encourage good mental health.
Together with our partners we are inviting business and organisations across the nation to support our campaign and become Working Minds Champions.
