During May’s Mental Health Awareness Week, Business in the Community (BiTC) launched its Mental Health at Work survey 2018 survey.

Now in its third year, the Mental Health at Work survey is once again looking to find out how employers are supporting their people’s mental health to help develop recommendations for businesses.

It’s widely accepted that mental ill health is one of the biggest public health challenges facing society. Research shows that one in six workers experience stress, depression or anxiety at any one time meaning that the workplace is a key area to manage and tackle mental ill health.

BiTC’s research is therefore a key part of tracking progress around workplace mental health and providing the insights businesses need to improve their approaches.

BiTC are calling on anyone in the UK who is employed or self-employed and over the age of 16 to take part in the survey, which closes for submissions on the 27th of July.

As the biggest survey of its kind, the research is also supported by national partners including Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England, Mind, Mental Health at Work, CIPD, ILM and The Work Foundation.
