Trade association Ceda is calling for the industry to participate in an important mental health survey as part of World Mental Health Awareness Day, which takes place tomorrow.
As first announced at its annual conference earlier this year, it has partnered with charity Mates in Mind as it seeks to highlight the importance of addressing mental health in the workplace.
Together, Ceda and Mates in Mind are undertaking an industry-wide survey to understand the issues seen at an organisational level, the impact they have on the people and the businesses themselves.
The aim is to fully understand the range of support mechanisms currently in place, identify gaps and establish areas of existing good practice.
Adam Mason, director general of Ceda , said: “This is an important issue for all of those involved in the Ceda family and in our wider industry. We urge everyone to participate so we can identify where we are currently with support mechanisms and what steps we can take to help our members have an effective programme in place to manage the mental health and wellbeing of their people.”
All the results of the questionnaire will remain completely confidential. No information which can identify the respondent, or their organisation will be shared outside of the research team within Mates in Mind.
The results of the survey will be shared only in aggregate format.
