Embracing Mental Health in the Workplace in the Philippines - Research Launch
Thanks to sponsorship from Northern Trust, we’ve extended our leading mental health research to the Philippines. Attend this webinar launch as we share key highlights from the research
As in other parts of Asia, mental health is only just emerging as a priority issue in the Philippines. To date, deeply rooted stigma, low levels of awareness and lack of investment in facilities and mental health professionals has hampered progress. However things are changing fast. Distinguished in the Asia region by the introduction of its Mental Health Law in 2016, the Philippines has put the spotlight on this important topic and is beginning to drive improvements.
Our latest research, Embracing Mental Health in the Workplace in the Philippines (an extension to our earlier Asia-wide research), provides valuable market context for understanding issues relating to mental health in the Philippines. It gives an overview of statistics, explores local market dynamics and challenges, highlights government and local initiatives and features corporate case studies to enable companies to have an informed approach to the way they address this sensitive topic in their workplaces in this critical market.
Attend this webinar launch to hear highlights from the research and perspectives from local experts.
