When we tweeted a link to this blog from Mind we received a lot of feedback. In fact, of all the links we’ve posted in recent weeks, this received the most retweets and comments. Previously a no-go topic, it seems that attitudes to mental health in the workplace are changing, and for the better.
In a post for Mind, Alison Chisnell, HR Director and passionate blogger, wrote about her experiences of blogging about mental health and ways businesses can take strides towards improving the support available to employees.
“Stand-alone initiatives on mental health are less important than integrating mental wellness into existing support and training to reduce stigma and create a better work environment.”
