This paper is a summary of the proceedings of a seminar between the Mental Health Foundation, the Academy of Government and Healthcare Improvement Scotland on workplace mental health, held at the Scottish Parliament.

The aim of the seminar was to bring together representatives from government, private, public an third sector organisations to discuss the challenges and opportunities in creating mentally healthy workplaces. The seminar would kick off the debate on how the Scottish Government and employers could, collectively, deliver Action 36 of Scotland's Mental Health Strategy.
