According to research carried out by mental health charity MIND, half of workers have experienced poor mental health in their current job.

The research has been revealed as MIND and the Duke of Cambridge have launched the online Mental Health at Work gateway to help workplaces improve staff wellbeing.

48% of the 44,000 people they surveyed said that they had experienced a mental health problem in their current job. The survey also revealed that only half of those spoke to their employer about it.

The Mental Health at Work gateway has been created by MIND, with the support of the Royal Foundation, Heads Together and 11 other organisations. The UK wide portal is a free resource for employers and employees. It pulls together information, advice resources and training, all of which can be used to improve wellbeing and give employees the mental health support they need.

If you’re worried about your own mental health, then make an appointment to see your doctor, or the MIND website can offer help and advice.
