Latest booklet - Workplace action on mental health - a trade union guide

Mental ill health is currently high up in the news agenda, but people experiencing mental health problems continue to face numerous difficulties at work. Union reps and other workplace union activists are in an excellent position to increase awareness of mental health problems in their workplaces and to negotiate good employer policies which improve wellbeing at work. This booklet gives practical advice to union reps on negotiating workplace policies and procedures on mental health. It aims to help reps work with employers to make workplaces supportive for individuals experiencing either long-term or short-term mental health difficulties, and to ensure that mental health problems are not created by work itself.
