Cigna has launched two guides to help tackle mental health in the workplace.
One provides support and advice to employers managing mental health issues in their organisation, which could range from stress and depression to addictions and eating disorders. The other is a guide to help those living with a mental health condition manage their symptoms and return to good mental health.
Kirsty Jagielko at Cigna says, “With mental health conditions affecting 15% of the population each year, it is essential that we work with employers to improve awareness and remove any stigma that may still be attached. Staying away from the workplace can exacerbate many mental health conditions so it is vital that we work together to help employees return to and stay in work.”
