This page outlines the Forum's resources to support organisations with Mental Wellbeing at Work.
CEO Guide to Mental Wellbeing at Work
The Forum and Leading Safety have developed a four-part framework for mental wellbeing at work; to support CEOs and organisations to make sense of their role in managing mental health and wellbeing at work. The key lesson from the guide is that to unlock a workforce’s true potential, a mental health and wellbeing strategy should aim to both protect workers from harm, and include activities to foster and support wellbeing.
