Whether work is causing a mental health issue or aggravating it, employers have a legal responsibility to help employees by recognising signs of stress and responding to them.

There are six main areas that may cause work-related stress or issues if not managed well: demands, control, support, relationships, role and change.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Working Minds campaign can help with five simple steps:

  • reach out
  • recognise
  • respond 
  • reflect 
  • make it routine

The campaign includes a risk assessment template and Talking Toolkit for line managers and employers to download.
