The primary objective of this product is to provide a brief practical guide of policy options to support national (health and labour) and workplace level policy makers to implement the evidence-based recommendations of the forthcoming WHO guideline on mental health at work. The policy brief describes the policy options required to prevent mental health conditions at work, to promote mental health at work, and to ensure people living with mental health conditions can access and effectively participate in line with the recommendations in the WHO guideline. Similar to the WHO guideline on mental health at work, the policy brief includes considerations for lower-resourced settings. The policy brief aims to increase the implementation of evidence-based mental health prevention, promotion and care for people who work or who aspire to work and are living with mental health conditions. By doing so, the product strengthens the enactment of WHO Comprehensive Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2030, WHO Global Strategy on Health Environment and Climate Change, and International Labour Organization Conventions relevant to the area of mental health, such as, but not limited to the Occupational Safety and Health Convention.
