Promotion of Activities Supporting Mental and Physical Health

Four Types of Care for Mental Health

We facilitate the widespread implementation of ongoing mental and physical health promotion activities, centering on the four types of care for mental health promoted by the Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare.
In fiscal 2018, we carried out stress checks for all employees. The results were subjected to group analysis.
We are improving workplace environments where stress levels are high--such as by providing training for managers--and confirming the effectiveness of these improvement measures.

Position-Based Mental Care Education

We also conduct ongoing stratified mental care education.
Continuing on from the previous fiscal year, in fiscal 2017 we selectively provided mental health education to managers in order to further enhance our recent key initiatives on line care (care by supervisors). We are also incorporating it into the job grade-specific education for new managers to deepen their understanding of mental health.
