Mindful Employer

MAKING IT HEALTHIER TO TALK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH

 Derby Homes has signed the MINDFUL EMPLOYER Charter for Employers who are Positive About Mental Health.

That’s a commitment to work towards improving the workplace

The Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health is a voluntary agreement seeking to support employers in working within the spirit of its positive approach. The Charter is one element of the MINDFUL EMPLOYER® initiative.

MINDFUL EMPLOYER is led by employers and aimed at increasing awareness of mental health in the workplace and supporting businesses in recruiting and retaining staff. A wide range of employers have been involved in planning the initiative which gives businesses ongoing practical support, training materials, an online discussion forum, support networks and assistance from other employers.

MINDFUL EMPLOYER is facilitated by Workways, a service run by Devon Partnership NHS Trust, which provides information, guidance and practical support for people whose mental health affects their ability to find or retain employment, training, education or voluntary work.
