Mental health and the workplace

Research by the ILO and the WHO has found that billions of working days – and so billions of dollars – are lost every year because of work-related mental health issues, and they have called for concrete measures to address this growing problem.

What are the psychosocial risks associated with modern workplaces, and can we make mentally healthy workplaces the new norm?

Susanna Harkonen, member of the WHO’s Pan-European working group on workplace mental health, and Nina Hedegaard Nielsen, Chief policy advisor on occupational health and safety at The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations, join us to explore how we can improve psychosocial health and safety at work.
