Mental health and the workplace

Download this publication

With the impact of austerity contributing to ever-increasing levels of workplace stress, there has been an increase in the prevalence of mental ill health.

On 5 February 2015, 90 delegates attended a TUC seminar and heard presentations from six unions (and one employer) on the subject of workplace mental health.

At the seminar, delegates were promised that TUC Education would develop a workbook to take forward the issues raised there and to integrate the union role in mental health at the workplace firmly within reps’ training. This workbook is an important step in supporting reps to take forward the lessons of the seminar.
