Mental Health & Wellbeing in the Workplace

MH19 Hub banner update 772x300

At the Institute of Directors, we know the significance mental health issues can have on business. When we produced our mental health report in 2017, entitled A Little More Conversation, it became rapidly apparent that this is an issue that affects our members on a large scale and one that needs further attention.

For 2019 and the re-launch of the IoD’s Mental Health & Wellbeing in the Workplace Campaign, we’ve teamed up with Mind, the UK’s leading mental health charity, and Westfield Health, an IoD Preferred Partner and award winning, not-for-profit organisation, dedicated to supporting the health and wellbeing of individuals and businesses across the UK. Working with our own Information and Advisory Service, these organisations have provided you access to the latest advice, best practice and other useful resources, as well as experiences of other business leaders.
