Thriving at Work: a review of mental health and employers

Mind Works Report finds around 300000 workers lose their jobs every year due to mental health issues

Lord Stevenson added: 'It's time for every employer to recognise their responsibilities and affect change, so that the United Kingdom becomes a world leader in workplace wellbeing for all staff and in supporting people with mental health problems to thrive at work'.

It includes a detailed analysis that explores the significant cost of poor mental health to United Kingdom businesses and the economy as a whole.

The independent report was commissioned by Mrs May in January and is the work of Paul Farmer, chief executive of Mind, the mental health charity, and Lord Stevenson of Coddenham.

"Working in schools is an effective way of identifying and working with children and young people's mental health needs and should lead to a more integrated service". It found that 300,000 people in the United Kingdom lose their jobs every year due to poor mental health and estimated that 15% of the workforce has symptoms of an existing mental health condition. This was just one of the United Kingdom media outlets that published the findings of a report looking at the extent of mental ill health in the workplace, and the related economic and social costs.

They made 40 recommendations for employers, government and regulators, and called on all employers - regardless of size or industry - to adopt six "mental health core standards".

It also found that people with long term mental health problems were leaving their jobs double the rate of their colleagues.

Produce, implement and communicate a "mental health at work" plan.

These recommendations are based on best practice or evidence, and the authors state there is a "pressing need" for more robust evidence about what works to support improved mental health at work.

The report gives recommendations for employers to improve mental health for its workers, which in addition to protecting staff well-being, will also cut costs and drive profits.

The report urged the government to "consider legislative change to enhance protections for employees with mental health conditions, particularly fluctuating mental health conditions, and clarify the role of employers in providing reasonable adjustments". For some, this is a short-term problem and they can continue at work, or return to work after sickness absence, with appropriate support. "It should spur employers into recognising that championing mental health and supporting employees makes good business sense and that inaction comes at a demonstrable cost".
