Charity Website aims to Improve Mental Health at Work22-Oct-2018
A group of mental health charities have come together to launch an online resource to help improve mental health of employees.
The mentalhealthatwork.org.uk website provides access to various resources; training and information to help employers better understand mental health issues in the workplace.
The website is a free to use platform overseen by the Heads Together campaign, the mental health charity led by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The gateway offers resources, training and information to help make life better for staff and employers.
This includes offering practical help on developing policies and procedures that promote positive mental health at work, as well as training on mental illness.
Intended mainly at employers, senior staff and line managers; the platform is designed to be accessible to anybody with an interest in improving mental health in the workplace.
The sentiment from the NCVO’s Director is one of encouragement; citing the platform is free to use, and that all charity staff, especially those who manage staff or volunteers, take the time to use it as NCVO has contributed some sector-specific resources to the platform.
The Director also highlights that there is “..a wealth of high quality information, toolkits, blogs and case studies from a wide range of other organisations.”
