The ILO Global Business and Disability Network (GBDN) has established a Working Group on mental health to facilitate the gathering and exchange of knowledge among company staff and other interested stakeholders on addressing mental health issues at the workplace. Members of the Working Group expressed interest in several aspects related to workplace mental health, particularly with regards to raising awareness and promoting and providing a stigma free environment (and reasonable accommodation). The ILO GBDN started further supporting their members with the development of an online knowledge platform that will contain relevant resources related to workplace mental health.
EPR members have contributed to the development of this online platform by sharing some of their practices, including future activities and projects addressing the societal impact of mental health in the workplace.
On this webinar participants learned how the online platform works, the main goals, main areas of interest that will be included in the platform and how this instrument will be of relevance for experts and other stakeholders. This webinar was a unique opportunity to share with the leader of the online platform new programmes developed by participants and to exchange information on mental health in workplace with other EPR members.
