Supporting the mental wellbeing of NHS staff

We're working in partnership with the mental health charity Mind to promote good mental health in the workplace.

As part of the Heads Together campaign, Mind curates the Mental health at work website, which provides information and resources aimed at helping organisations get to grips with workplace mental health.

With its November 2019 focus being on the NHS, Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers, has penned a blog on the importance of supporting the mental wellbeing of NHS staff. 

Danny says:

"It's imperative that NHS organisations make sure our staff are given all the support they need. Staff must feel able, rather than obligated, to stay in work if they are experiencing mental ill health.They must also feel able to discuss their mental wellbeing openly and have confidence it will be prioritised and properly supported by employers."
