Scottish Government: Employment and Mental Health Working Group Workshop

Since the last meeting of the Scottish Government‘s Employment and Mental Health Working group in November workstream groups have been continuing to support the development of the mental health and wellbeing online platform for employers. At the last meeting, it was agreed that a workshop should be held during the development phase to ‘test’ the platform with a number of employers and those representing their interests.

The workshop will allow members of the working group, along with a targeted number of employers and union representatives, to review and test a draft version of the online platform and to feedback views from a user’s perspective.  This user testing stage is an important element of the design process and will help to ensure that the final product is fit for purpose.

This workshop will take place on Wednesday 23rd February from 12 noon to 1.30PM. For more information and to register to attend, please click here.
