With one in six employees experiencing a mental health problem at any one time, and stress thought to be responsible for almost half of all working days lost in Britain due to health issues, the relationship between the workplace and mental health is a complex one.

All businesses have a legal duty to provide safe working conditions – this includes ensuring that work is not causing or contributing to mental ill-health.

Businesses that invest in a meaningful organisational mental health strategy have healthier, happier and more resilient employees- and see an excellent financial return on their investment (studies suggest ROI 5:1).

Most businesses want to ensure that they provide a mentally safe and healthy workplace but many businesses do not know where to start. BIBA’s workplace mental health scheme with Mental Health in Business (MHIB) ensures that businesses are complying with best practice in workplace mental health. MHIB provide the following:
