Workplace Healthy Minds

What is the Nottingham Workplace Healthy Minds programme?

There is a growing need to support the mental health and wellbeing of employees in workplaces across Nottingham City and so Workplace Healthy Minds is taking action to change people’s attitudes and behaviour around mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

The programme will support Nottingham City employers by:

  • Encouraging organisations to make a public commitment to supporting employee mental health.
  • Advising employers on collecting and recording information on mental wellbeing and tracking the success of interventions e.g. via mental health needs assessments, staff surveys, or organisational temperature checks. 
  • Providing support to line managers/senior leaders to facilitate conversations about mental health and effectively embed mental health into organisational policy, strategy, and values.
  • Developing a communications plan for workplace engagement with national campaigns and events such as Mental Health Awareness Week and Time to Talk Day.

Could you be a Workplace Healthy Minds Champion?

We are also working to Identify a network of city-wide workplace mental wellbeing champions. Champions will take action to raise awareness of mental health in workplaces across the city, encouraging a culture of positive mental health across their organisation. Training will be provided, and support given to develop a mental health and wellbeing action plan, led by the needs of employees.

Who can get involved?

We are particularly interested in working with small-medium sized organisations (<250 employees) that work in the following sectors:

  • Construction
  • Hospitality
  • Retail

However it’s not essential that you work in these sectors 

How do I find out more?

More details about how to get involved will be shared here very soon. In the meantime, if you would like to express an interest in being a Workplace Healthy Minds Champions, please fill in the attached form:
