Access to Work has a Mental Health Support Service (MHSS) to assist those who are experiencing mental health difficulties which are affecting them at work, and those with a pre-existing mental health condition who have a job start date. We are currently consulting, through the Work, Health and Disability Green Paper, Improving Lives, to better understand how we can assist employers with their role of creating wellbeing in the workplace.
