World mental health day 2017 - theme is 'workplace wellbeing'

The theme of World Mental Health Day 2017 is workplace wellbeing, which is significantly important both for individuals who are looking to boost their own wellbeing at work and for employers who want to ensure they are supporting their staff effectively.

We spend a lot of time at work, so the way in which we feel at work, and the experiences we encounter at work are a hugely important factor in determining our wellbeing. Appropriate work is extremely good for our wellbeing, but sadly, too many of us feel that work negatively impacts on our wellbeing.
