The Mental health promotion in the workplace – A good practice report is an important document which provides health and HR professionals in Europe with an insight into the promotion of mental health at work. The report is divided into several key sections. The first section provides the readers with an introduction into mental health and ill-health in the workplace and its causes and consequences; it further summarises how mental health promotion initiatives in general can and do address this issue. The following section provides the reader with the methodology utilised for the case study analysis and the results of the analysis. This part is followed by a discussion of the results, the implications of the analysis and recommendations of the way forward for workplace mental health promotion. An overview of the cases and summaries can be found in Appendices I and II.
