  • DG Employment publishes guidelines on mental health at work
    19/05/2015
    DG Employment has just published guidelines on mental health at work as part of the results of a recent study involving Prevent, Work Research Centre, University of Nottingham, the London School of Economics and TNO. This study examined the case for workplaces doing more to prevent and manage mental health issues of their employees. It examined the current legislative provisions in the area and examined the case for introducing further legislation.

    As part of this work, new guidelines have been developed which integrate occupational health and safety, mental health promotion and absence management approaches to mental health issues. In doing so, they look to extend the field beyond a sole focus on workplace factors and to include mental health issues that arise from outside of the workplace.

    The study has also produced an interpretive note on mental health issues at work. This provides an interpretation of currently existing legislation in the area with a view to pointing to the ways in which it can be used as the basis for wider action on mental health at work.

    The project has also produced a final report which integrates these documents as well as providing a useful summary of current literature and an assessment of potential scenarios for the future.

    The reports from this project can be downloaded from:

  • Learning to take actions for mental fitness and wellbeing in older age (MENTA50+)
    06/11/2013
    The overall aim of the MENTA50+ project is to respond to the challenges of an ageing society through promoting increased activity of older people, by providing them a supporting framework and developing materials which reflect a holistic approach in giving solutions.

    The project consortium shares the belief that the key to respond to these challenges is to empower both the final end-users and also facilitators and providers who are important mediators to reach the target audience as well as to bridge between them and decision makers.

    The message of the project: “Better (mental) health can lead to living your life more actively” and vice versa “Active lifestyle leads to healthy ageing” reflects the association between active ageing and mental health, which the project undertakes to prove and support. Consequently, this results in communicating the self-responsibility and the capability of the individual to take actions for his healthy and active later life!
  • Closing conference for ENWHP PHWork initiative
    21/10/2013
    The conference in Brussels will conclude the 9th European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) initiative “Work. Adapted for all. Move Europe”, focussing on promoting healthy work for employees with chronic illness (Public Health and Work, PH Work).

    Chronic conditions and diseases have a substantial impact on the labour market and working life. This urges the need for effective job retention and workplace-based return-to-work (RTW) strategies and interventions, as a means of preventing employees with a chronic illness of moving into disability or early retirement. The PH Work project contributes towards the implementation of effective workplace health practices within corporate policies of enterprises in Europe
