Minding Your Mental Health - Supports for Employees 

Health and psychosocial risks which includes work-related stress are among the most challenging issues in occupational safety and health. They impact significantly on the health of employees, organisations and industry.

Around half of European workers consider stress to be common in their workplace, and it contributes to around half of all lost working days. Like many other issues surrounding mental health, stress is often misunderstood or stigmatised.
