What is mental health?

Mental health skills include for example emotional and awareness skills, life skills, as well as interpersonal and problem solving skills.

Difficult situations in life

Mental health varies according to life situation and circumstances. Almost every person encounters mental health challenges at some point.

Current issues

Mental health is supported through proactive measures at workplaces — effective cooperation with occupational healthcare is of key importance

Supporting mental health at work requires that both workplaces and occupational healthcare update their cooperation practices and are willing to learn together. As a result of the Mental Health at Work Programme, a model has now been published where mental wellbeing is promoted through cooperation between workplaces and occupational healthcare by strengthening the resources of work communities.
