Tool Description

This paper discusses the importance to employers of mental health problems in the workforce. Drawing on UK and international evidence, it seeks to identify all the key effects of mental ill health and stress at work and, wherever possible, to quantify these in financial terms. It aims to demonstrate why mental health is important to all employers – as a business matter. The evidence indicates that better management of mental health at work makes good business sense, because of the substantial costs that are potentially avoidable through effective action.
