Celebrating one year of the Working Minds campaign

Launched one year ago this week, the Working Minds campaign has announced a new partner and podcast.

Working Minds calls for change across Britain’s workplaces where stress, depression and anxiety are responsible for half of ill-health reports among workers. The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has become the latest organisation to join the campaign, which means the number of partners has more than doubled since launch. This week, the campaign has also reached a significant milestone of 1000 champions signed up to support and amplify messages.

To coincide with the anniversary, HSE Chair Sarah Newton is joined by one of the world’s foremost experts on wellbeing, Professor Cary Cooper, for a new episode of the HSE Podcast.

Professor Cooper is the author/editor of over 170 books, has written more than 450 scholarly articles for academic journals, and is a frequent contributor to national newspapers, TV and radio. They talk about the importance of stress, mental good health and the Working Minds campaign.
