Mental Health at Work 2019 research launch – Scotland


Time: to


Our experience of work plays a massive part in our ongoing wellbeing – positive or negative.

Nearly two-thirds of people (61%) have experienced a mental health issue due to work and one in three have been formally diagnosed with a mental health condition1.
So what must we do?
This event launches Business in the Community's (BITC) 2019 research on Mental Health at Work in Scotland and is supported by Mercer Marsh Benefits and the BITC Wellbeing Leadership Team. The report is informed by a national survey conducted by YouGov looking at mental health, primarily through a line manager lens, and also through the multiple intersectional issues of age, gender, race, LGBT+ and financial wellbeing. There will be a new spotlight on bullying and harassment.
The aims and objectives of the event 
You will find out in greater detail what we have discovered about the wellbeing of Scotland's workforce, what the implications are and what must we do to quickly shift the dial.
