Supporting a Mentally Healthy Workplace - Mental Health & Wellbeing Platform for Employers

Today a new Mental Health & Wellbeing Platform for Employers has been launched by the the Scottish Government and Public Health Scotland, which streamlines employer access to free and reputable health and wellbeing resources. 

The new Mental Health & Wellbeing Platform for Employers has been developed in partnership with the Employment and Mental Health Working Group, which brings together the experience and expertise of cross-sectoral representatives from employer organisations, Trade Unions, mental health organisations and public sector partners. Apologies if you have received this from multiple sources, however we are working with PHS to share the platform across our relevant stakeholders.

We understand that employers can sometimes find it difficult to find the right information and advice to support mental health and wellbeing at work, and we want to signpost them to reputable information. The platform is targeted at employers of all sizes in Scotland from large scale companies to SMEs and the self-employed, but this will also be a useful resource for employees.
