What is the Mental Health at Work Platform?

This digital platform provides analytical, decision-making, intervention, and evaluation tools to promote well-being in the workplace. Through the platform, you can benchmark your organisation and use the decision support system to understand what kind of interventions are recommended in your case.

Where does the Mental Health at Work Platform come from?

The H-WORK Innovation Platform is an outcome of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation project “H-WORK – Multilevel Interventions to Promote Mental Health in SMEs and Public Workplaces”. The project aimed to design, develop, implement, and validate multilevel assessment, intervention, and evaluation toolkits to promote mental health in the workplace across Europe.
