On 1 May 2021, the MENTUPP Hub and the MENTUPP Pilot Study went live. The Hub is an online platform that serves as an evidence-based Mental Health Promotion and Intervention Tool for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Europe and Australia.
The MENTUPP Hub delivers psycho-educational materials, toolkits and links to additional resources. The primary aim is to improve mental health in the workplace in three sectors associated with an increased risk of mental health difficulties: construction, healthcare, and ICT. The Hub materials are further tailored for employees, employers, and managers in each sector.
By providing materials on a comprehensive range of topics, the Hub also aims to reduce depression and suicidal behavior at the individual, group, and organizational levels. These materials consist of online information packages, videos – including role-play and animated scenarios, and practical stress management exercises. Participating workplaces are encouraged to integrate these materials with their everyday working practices.
The Hub will be piloted in eight countries starting 1 May 2021 to test its feasibility, acceptability, and uptake in mental health promotion and intervention in occupational settings.
