Abstract

The purpose of the research was to conduct a Delphi expert consensus study (with employer, health professional and employee experts) to develop guidelines for the workplace prevention of mental health problems. A systematic review of websites, books, pamphlets and journal articles was conducted; a 363-item survey developed; and 314 strategies were endorsed as essential or important by at least 80% of all three panels. The endorsed strategies provided information on: creating a positive work environment; reducing job strain; rewarding employee efforts; workplace fairness; provision of supports; supportive change management; provision of training; provision of mental health education; and employee responsibilities.
