There is a constant pressure to produce more with less resources and this is one reason why mental health has become a growing concern and an obvious priority within many businesses. However, with the best intentions, there may not be the funds, resources or expertise to launch an inhouse strategy from scratch.

At Altruist Enterprises, we want to ensure that you have the knowledge and confidence to support your people through the many challenges of work and home.

With this in mind, we are delighted to release our 2018 ‘Guide to Producing a Workplace Mental Well-being Strategy’.

The guide covers plans of what you will do and how you will do it in order to prevent, recognise and tackle mental health issues relevant to your business. By implementing a workplace strategy, you will be showing your commitment to better mental well-being for your employees. It will be tailored and bespoke to you, helping to maximise its benefits.

With an increased public awareness of mental health, the time is now to implement proactive strategies that ensure resilient, motivated and more productive workforces.
