Heads Together: The Duke Of Cambridge Launches 'Mental Health At Work'
Sep 11th, 2018 by Jane Noble
In partnership with the mental health charity, Mind, Heads Together and The Royal Foundation have launched a new online platform, Mental Health at Work, which brings together a wealth of resources, training and information to help people make their life better at work - for themselves, and for their colleagues. No matter the size of your workplace, and no matter where you work, mental health is essential to our daily well being. Mental Health at Work aims to change the way the workplace approaches mental health and eliminate the stigma that accompanies admitting all is not well.
It is fantastic that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and The Duke of Sussex are highlighting this important subject. Taking care of mental health at work makes sound business sense. It means taking care of a company’s most valuable asset - people - so that they are happy and perform at their best. Having motivated employees is a win-win for employers and customers. It is important to be observant as to how people express their stress and then have sensitive conversations and take appropriate action to ease the situation without fear of discrimination.
