The Work Foundation probes stress at work issue

The
Work Foundation has launched a new programme of research looking at mental
health issues that affect the workplace.

The
group is working with Mind Out for Mental Health on behalf of the Department of
Health, and hopes to raise awareness of problems in this area.

The
campaign is designed to improve the way mental health is managed in the UK
workplace, and develop better policies and procedures when dealing with staff.

The
Work Foundation also wants to look at the way people with stress or other
mental health problems are managed and supported by their employer.

The
findings will be published in July along with resources, advice and guidance
for line managers.

The
Work Foundation is currently looking for individuals to take part in the online
survey which takes around five minutes to complete.
