Mental Health Awareness Week (14 to 20 May 2018) is about stress and how we’re coping with it.

We’re focusing on helping employees and employers create a mentally healthy workplace where everyone feels valued and supported. We have a range of information, guidance and support on how you can achieve this.

We all know what it’s like to feel stressed – it’s part of everyday life. But when you’re overwhelmed by stress it may lead to mental health problems or make existing problems worse.

Mental Health Awareness Week 2018 is a great time to think about how we can all address the causes of work-related stress or find advice and support on managing stress in our daily lives.

For employers

We work with a range of organisations to help them improve their approach to mental health in the workplace.

Whether you're a line manager looking to support the mental health of your staff or a senior leader interested in improving the workplace wellbeing of your organisation – we can help.

We have a range of services to help you find practical ways to make your staff feel supported including free information and resources, training and our Workplace Wellbeing Index.

For employees

For us to maintain our wellbeing, noticing what’s making us stressed helps us learn how we can deal with it. This is particularly important in the workplace where stresses of workload and working relationships are common. In fact, work is the biggest cause of stress in people’s lives, more so than debt or financial problems. (Mind, 2013)

Our information includes ways you can help yourself feel less stressed and how to get support.
