  • Protect: Identify and manage work-related risks to mental health. 
  • Respond: Identify and respond to support people experiencing mental ill-health or distress. 
  • Promote: Recognise and enhance the positive aspects of work that contribute to good mental health. 

You can also find out what mentally healthy workplaces look like for sole traders, small businesses and medium to large businesses. The Blueprint also provides links to resources for organisations and individuals.
