Mental health in the workplace - a little more conversation

The IoD is committed to raising awareness of mental health issues in the workplace, with a particular focus on opening up the conversation for small and medium-sized businesses, which often lack the resources of larger corporate organisations to address their employees’ mental health.


The IoD has created this mental health hub to help business leaders promote and nurture good mental health in the workplace — and to help them spot the signs of mental health problems and know how to help. Our hub is packed full of helpful advice, best practice and useful resources, as well as shared experiences from business leaders as to how they look after their own mental health and that of their employees.
