Tackling stress at work this World Mental Health Day

From Health and Safety Executive:

World Mental Health Day is on Monday 10 October and the theme this year is making mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority.

HSE’s statistics show that 822,000 workers suffered from stress, depression and anxiety in 2020/21.

The earlier a problem is tackled the less impact it will have for your workers and business.
