Poor workplace mental health can lead to problems with absenteeism. Emma Jacobs discusses what can be done to improve this with Jaan Madan of Mental Health First Aid England and Nigel Jones of the City of London Mental Health Alliance.
Three podcasts to boost your knowledge
Sometimes the best time to learn something new is when you’re away from your normal work – whether you’re waiting in a queue, travelling around or just on a daily commute. These podcasts, each less than half an hour long, are a low-pressure way to get started in thinking about mental health at work.
Two of them should give you some good ideas – promoting positive mental health, and thinking about resilience – and the other is a great introduction to why mental health matters in the first place.

With reports of mental health problems at work increasing yearly, this episode of the CIPD Podcast discusses the need for businesses to foster good mental health in their organisations. Featuring professionals from Mind and Deloitte, and MP Norman Lamb.
