Encouraging Surrey businesses to invest in employee mental health

We know that greater numbers of Surrey residents, of all ages, are experiencing mental health problems, worsened by COVID, national and tiered lockdowns, social distancing and the effects of trauma, bereavement, and economic insecurity.

On 30 June, Michael Coughlin, Surrey County Council's Deputy Chief Executive, was joined by a panel of mental health experts and businesses to showcase the work Surrey County Council is doing to improve the emotional wellbeing and positive mental health of our residents, many of who are also employees.

The Good Mental Health is Good Business Sense event followed on from last year's Mental Health Summit and the work the council has been doing with local mental health charities, businesses and business groups.

The aim of the event was to highlight the importance of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and provide practical suggestions as to how it can be improved. The panel of experts discussed how we can best help Surrey businesses to access the support their employees may need as well as understanding any challenges they may face.
