The third Mental Health at Work Report 2018 by Business in the Community, in conjunction with Mercer, evidenced that awareness of mental health in the workplace has increased, with 60% of employees saying they feel their line manager is concerned for their wellbeing (up from 55% in 2016)1.
Despite this, just 16% felt able to disclose a mental health issue to their manager (up from 13% in 20172)
This means that whilst employers may be concerned and genuinely trying to make it better for their people, the increased investment for the majority of employers is failing to address the issue.
