There’s a growing need to support mental health in the workplace. And with more and more resources, tools, advice and recommendations available, the opportunity is here.
But where do you start? And how can you tell what will make a genuine longer-term positive impact on your staff’s wellbeing? The Mental Health at Work Commitment can help.
The Mental Health at Work Commitment is a simple framework that builds on what we know: based on the Thriving at Work standards, pulling from the pledges and standards that are already out there, using up-to-date research, from UK employers and mental health experts.
We believe the Mental Health at Work Commitment, and the standards which underpin it, are a roadmap to achieving better mental health outcomes for employees. It’s a set of actions that any organisation can follow to improve and support the mental health of their people.
Employers who sign the commitment will lead the way in implementing each standard for their employees. Along with each standard are ideas to get you thinking and tools to get you started—all aiming to make it easier for organisations big and small to implement each standard and drive change.
But beyond that, it’s a way of showing your values. By signing your organisation up to the Commitment, you’re declaring publicly that mental health at work is a priority for you—and you’re joining the growing movement of likeminded employers, businesses and organisations across the UK.
