11:30-12:30 GMT, 12:30-13:30 CET

Join us for this free-to-attend webinar organised by the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology to celebrate European Public Health Week.

The 2021 European Working Conditions Telephone Survey (EWCTS) highlighted the challenge of poor mental health in the workplace. Here, 22% out of over 70,000 across Europe reported being at risk of depression, 13% reported physical and emotional exhaustion, and 46% reported the accumulation of health problems. The findings conclude that: “the link is crystal clear: the more strained the job, the higher the share of workers reporting these negative outcomes”.

Recognising the scale of the problem. This webinar draws on evidence-based approaches to stay safe and thrive at work and will cover:

  • Why mental health at work is everyone’s business
