Mental health is one of the most difficult work related risks to manage. Despite being a part of the duty of care, most businesses find the challenge of managing mental health risks in the workplace overwhelming. Part of the difficulty is that the approach to mental health management to date has been mostly reactive. This eBook explores the obligations relating to managing mental health risks in the workplace and outlines a holistic approach to the prevention of work related mental health risks.
