How to implement the Thriving at Work standards in your workplace

In January 2017 the Prime Minister appointed Dennis Stevenson and Paul Farmer to conduct an independent review into how employers can better support all employees including those with poor mental health or wellbeing to remain in and thrive at work. The report made key recommendations for all employers to adopt six ‘mental health core standards’ that lay the basic foundations for an approach to workplace mental health. Our guide will help you implement these standards in your workplace.
