Business is waking up to the scale of poor mental health in the workplace, but there is still a long way to go. Our second National Employee Mental Wellbeing Survey in partnership with YouGov, part of a three-year collaborative project with business and five national partners, reveals that although there has been progress against our three calls to action and recommendations in the 2016 report, too many men and women with mental health issues are suffering in silence in work, unable to seek help from colleagues or managers. Fears of prejudice and exclusion are limiting employee's ability to achieve their full potential.
