Mental Health at Work Commitment Standard 2 resources

Physical and mental health conditions often go hand in hand, so it’s clear that a holistic approach to prioritising mental health where you work is the only way forward. People are a key part of the work environment, too – the way we behave influences the culture we create. From recruitment and onboarding to flexible working and email etiquette, coming to work can and should be a positive force for wellbeing.
