(NICE) Mental wellbeing at work: Draft scope

12 August 2019

The proportion of UK employees who are part-time, temporary, agency staff, on zero hours contracts or self-employed has increased since PH22 was published in 2009.

The Stevenson/Farmer review Thriving at work estimates that 15% of UK workers have an existing mental health condition.  Workplace policies and activities to promote and protect employee mental health and wellbeing vary widely.

This is an excellent opportunity for the BPS to provide a strong psychological evidence base to inform the draft scope which will eventually form the basis of the NICE guideline.

This should be of interest to Occupational Psychologists, Health Psychologists or anyone else working within the field of Wellbeing at Work.
