Why focus on mental health at work?
Most adults spend a majority of our waking hours at work. That’s why we need to take workplace mental health as seriously as we take traditional, physical health and safety issues at work.
Today, employers have a responsibility to protect us from work situations that harm our mental health, and to create a work environment that promotes psychological health and safety.
With this in mind, MGEU members decided at the 2018 MGEU Convention to embark on a workplace mental health campaign to raise awareness about workplace mental health, and help us press for employer action on workplace mental health and wellness.
