Key recommendations include:
• Appointing mental wellness champions to raise employees’ awareness of mental well-being and mental health conditions;
• Providing access to counselling services such as Employee Assistance Programme (EAPs);
• Training managers to spot signs of mental distress; and
• Recognising the need for employees to have adequate rest outside of work hours.
