This research - on Mental Health Promotion Interventions and Supports Provided by Voluntary Organisations to Workplaces - has been conducted by the Health Promotion Research Centre in National University of Ireland Galway, with the support of the HSE National Office of Suicide Prevention (NOSP) and Healthy Ireland.
The aim of the research was to map the range of mental health promotion supports and services that are offered by the voluntary sector to workplaces and to identify the most effective and feasible evidence-informed approaches that could be adopted to promote the mental health and wellbeing of workers in the Irish context.
The objectives of the study were:
- To identify key mental health organisations in the voluntary sector who provide supports to workplaces.
- To map the type and level of supports provided, including but not limited to: educational packages, workshops, training, advice, awareness events, strategy building, mental health literacy, structured programmes, and assistance in the evaluation of initiatives.
- To undertake a rapid review of the international evidence with regard to models of good practice in the provision of mental health promotion initiatives in the workplace, in order to assist voluntary organisations to maintain a high level of evidence-informed practice.
