This short article from the Institute of Directors (IoD) talks about steps you can take to ensure a positive working environment in your business.


The article can be found in the Need to Know section of the IoD’s mental health hub, where there is a wealth of good information and practical tools. The article talks broadly about what mental health is and sites a number of credible sources. It then goes on to explain that one of the most important things an organisation can do is to have an environment where conversation about mental health is encouraged.
