Mental Health and Suicide Prevention in the Workplace: A Multi-Stakeholder Survey to Inform Practice Improvements
The aim of the project is to increase knowledge about the prevalence, responses and outcomes of mental health and suicidal crises in the workplace.
Stressful work conditions and occupational practices are linked with poorer mental health. Addressing mental health concerns can be a serious challenge in the workplace, or it can present an opportunity to build a resilient workforce. Employees, Human Resources Professionals, and lawyers all play an important role in supporting workforce mental health and resilience. Yet, there is currently little research on the experience of employees, Human Resources and lawyers in addressing mental health issues at work. This study will help us learn more about these stakeholders’ experiences and will help inform the development of a tool to help these stakeholders work together to better navigate workplace mental health issues in a productive way.
