29 Oct Thriving at Work – New Report
It is clear that this is probably one of the most important reviews on mental health and wellbeing in the workplace that has been published for a while. We have had report after report and now we need action and we are all ultimately responsible for taking that action.
As someone with mental and physical health challenges, I was particularly encouraged by the acknowledgement that ‘71% of long term mental health conditions are present alongside other long term health conditions, with as many as 4 or more including musculoskeletal conditions, heart problems and chest or breathing problems.
This report has a lot of detail, you can download it and read at your leisure here. I have captured some key pieces of information that really brings home the importance of creating a mentally healthy and ‘thriving’ workforce.
