Supporting a mentally healthy workplace
28 October 2022
With it being estimated that people spend an average of 90,000 hours of their life at work, employers have a crucial role to play in supporting good mental health and wellbeing amongst their workforce. Actively promoting positive mental health and wellbeing not only builds a supportive workplace culture, it makes sound business sense, but it can be hard to know where to start.
A new digital platform has been launched by the Scottish Government and Public Health Scotland to signpost employers to the information they need to help them develop and implement the right approaches that will support good mental health.
The platform includes information on a range of topics, including understanding mental health, mental health and the law, supporting colleagues who are struggling, and building a supportive organisational culture, whether working in the same physical space or remotely.
