Scottish Trades Union Congress Opens Survey on Mental Health in the Workplace for #TimeToTalk Day

The survey aims to look at the root causes of mental ill health in work, how to challenge these, and wider societal issues around mental health.

The Scottish Trades Union Congress (STUC) has launched the survey “We are all in it together: exploring our personal and collective power around mental health” to coincide with #TimeToTalk day, a national day for raising awareness about mental ill health on 7 February.

Trade Unions can provide a space to support people with mental ill health. They are also vital in challenging employers whose workplace cultures create mental ill health.

The STUC will be using data gathered from the survey at an event they are holding in June. Using the results they will examine how trade union reps can be kept at the forefront of designing, implementing and enforcing workplace practices which eradicate mental ill health caused or exacerbated by work.

Scottish MU members are encouraged to take part in the survey, which will remain open until 19 May.

Take the survey.
