See Me in Work – stigma and discrimination in mental health

Organisation: See Me


This PDF from See Me outlines the legal, moral and business case for taking mental health in the workplace seriously.

As an employer, it can sometimes be easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. Why should we consider mental health in the workplace? This PDF outlines how you can answer this question with the following three approaches:

  • The moral case – “Doing the right thing because it’s fair.”
  • The business case – “Doing things because they’re best for business.”
