Jointly developed by mental health charity Mind and the CIPD, this guide contains information, practical advice and conversation checklists for managers to better support those experiencing stress and mental health issues.

The guide addresses all aspects of employment, from recruitment, managing mental health at work, to supporting return to work after a period of absence. It will help managers facilitate conversations and put in place support so employees can stay well and in work – meaning better performance and improved retention of talent and expertise. The guide also sets out the practical steps that employers can take to create a mentally healthy workplace.
