A useful guide has been recently released on mental health policies and bargaining for change. click the document below to read in more details.

Attention was also drawn to the important document, Thriving at work The Stevenson / Farmer review of mental health and employers. the important extract is the following…

“Deloitte conducted a systematic review of literature on the returns from investing in Mental Health in the workplace resulting in the inclusion of 23 high quality examples where investments were made in trying to improve mental health and where there was enough information to evaluate the impact. The return on investment of workplace mental health interventions is overwhelmingly positive. The average return per £1 spent was £4.20 (with a range of between 40p and £9), and this has been supported by international academic literature in the form of meta- studies”
