First scientific publication of StRaW®

The first study into StRaW was published in the Workplace Health & Safety Journal in September – with results showing positive effects for mental health in the workplace. You can access the paper here.

StRaW (Sustaining Resilience at Work) is our peer support system designed to detect and prevent occupational mental health issues and boost an organisation’s psychological resilience.

Heathrow Airport’s Katherine Compton wrote about their implementation of StRaW, as well the other workplace health and wellbeing work that Heathrow Airport have been undertaking, in IOSH magazine in October. The article is a great read on an organisation’s approach to supporting people in the workplace. You can find it here
