HSE launch Working Minds Campaign

Mental health is the number one reason for time off sick with 17.9 million working days lost last year as a result of stress. Anxiety, or depression.  Mental health is about how we think, feel and behave and is often a reaction to a life event.  What affects one person may not affect another.

Employers have a legal duty to protect employees from stress at work by undertaking a risk assessment, identifying any significant risks and taking steps to remove or reduce them.

  • Reach out
  • Recognise
  • Respond
