PREVENTION OF WORK-RELATED MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS

Work can be a protective factor for mental health, but it can also contribute to potential harm. All workers have the right to a safe and healthy environment at work. The Mental health at work: policy brief, developed jointly by World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Labour Organization, provides a pragmatic framework for implementing the recommendations of the WHO guidelines on mental health at work. This policy brief provides actions for governments, employers, employers’ and workers’ organizations, civil society and health service planners to prevent work-related mental health conditions, protect and promote mental health at work and support workers with mental health conditions.
