An independent review on how employers can better support the mental health of employees, including those with mental health problems or poor well-being, has been published today.

The Stevenson/Farmer review, Thriving At Work, contains 40 recommendations. They include:-

• all employers should adopt certain mental health core standards, set out in the report;

• public sector, and private sector employers with over 500 employees, should take additional steps, again set out in the report;

• employers should be encouraged by legislation to report publicly on their workforce's mental health;

• professional bodies should implement training and support measures for their employer members.
