Prince William launches new site for mental health in the workplace
Prince William has launched a new website today to aid mental well-being in the workplace.
The new site, Mental Health at Work, has been funded by the Royal Foundation, the charitable trust of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. It follows their work on the Heads Together campaign to end the stigma around mental health.
The site has been created in partnership with Mind after a survey by the mental health charity revealed that 48 per cent of employees in the UK had experienced poor mental health at work but only half spoke to their employer about it.
Low mood, anxiety and stress were the main issues highlighted by the survey that also estimated that lack of communication is costing employers between £33 billion and £42 billion a year.
No matter the size of your workplace, and no matter where you work, #MentalHealthAtWork can help you find what you need to start your journey to better workplace wellbeing for everyone.

The site is a resource for employers large and small to access resources to better support their employees. These resources can be filtered by sector, role, type of workplace and size of workplace.
These resources have been categorised into helpful toolkits.
Resources can be accessed by anyone and employers can create an account to save toolkits and track which resources they have used.
