Mental Health at Work

Catch Up Video View Session

Before the Covid-19 pandemic, poor mental health was the most common cause of long-term sickness absence and cost the UK economy more than £70 billion each year. The pandemic has disrupted many aspects of work, and research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development has found that it has made the mental health problem worse, especially for those with an existing condition. Looking to the future, we have an opportunity to introduce new, better workplace practices and a culture that considers mental health equally with physical health. Join us to discover how business leaders, employees and freelancers can help create a better world of work, and improve their own wellbeing.
