Introducing the mental health core standards
We believe all employers can and should:
1 – Produce, implement and communicate a mental health at work plan that promotes good mental health of all employees and outlines the support available for those who may need it.
2- Develop mental health awareness among employees by making information, tools and support accessible.
3- Encourage open conversations about mental health and the support available when employees are struggling, during the recruitment process and at regular intervals throughout employment, offer appropriate workplace adjustments to employees who require them.
4- Provide employees with good working conditions and ensure they have a healthy work life balance and opportunities for development.
5- Promote effective people management to ensure all employees have a regular conversation about their line manager, supervisor, or organisational leader and train and support line managers and supervisors in effective management practices.
6- Routinely monitor employee mental health and wellbeing by understanding available data talking to employees and understanding risk factors.
