Today we launched our Global Thriving At Work Framework which sets out, for the first time, a global standard for workplace mental health.
It has been developed in collaboration with global businesses, and is based on 10 years of workplace mental health experience, with insight from across the CMHA membership of 54 large businesses contributing their expertise and knowledge.
Workplaces, the cornerstone of any society, can play a significant role in supporting the positive mental health of their people. They are a place that many people seek support, even before a health service or family. They are well placed, and have a huge opportunity, to promote wellbeing and prevent poor mental health. And, as we face a global mental health crisis, there has never been a more important time for businesses to do this.
