Mindful Employer Update - Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health Increases

Since MINDFUL EMPLOYER was launched in 2004, a total of 1,878 employers have at some point been a signatory to the Charter for Employers who are Positive About Mental Health.

The Charter is not an accreditation, award or a set of quality standards - it is completely voluntary.

The Charter is about working towards the principles of it not the immediate fulfilment of them – signing up is a step along a journey not the end of it. Being a Charter signatory doesn't mean 'getting it all right' - but it does indicate a willingness to work towards better practice. Employers can be involved in MINDFUL EMPLOYER without signing the Charter but many use it as a tangible display of their commitment to improving the working lives of their staff. 

Nearly 90 employers have signed the  Charter for Employers who are Positive About Mental Health  so far this year, compared to 53 in the same period last year. This is a great surge of interest and continues to show how employers (contrary to some other publicity you might read…!) really are taking active steps to support the mental wellbeing of their staff.
