The Duke of Cambridge and Mind have launched an online Mental Health at Work gateway to help workplaces improve staff wellbeing following a survey of 44,000 employees which revealed that 48% have experienced a mental health problem in their current job. The survey also revealed that only half of those who had experienced poor mental health had talked to their employer about it, suggesting that as many as one in four UK workers is struggling in silence. The gateway brings together information, advice, resources and training that workplaces can use to improve wellbeing and give employees the mental health support they need.
