Challenges in implementing mental health strategies

With greater public awareness, political interest and transparency around the importance of good workplace mental health and wellbeing, more and more employers are reviewing their activities in this space. Yet despite this positive trend, many employers are still facing numerous challenges in implementing effective mental health and wellbeing strategies.

 

Based on a recent report by Deloitte UK’s Centre for Health Solutions, this seminar will discuss workplace mental health and wellbeing at a tipping point, with employers increasingly improving their activities in supporting employee mental health and wellbeing.

Dr Mina Hinsch is a Research Manager at the Centre.
