NHS South Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group has demonstrated its commitment to supporting staff who experience stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health conditions in the workplace by signing up to the Mindful Employer Charter.
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 which is aimed at increasing awareness of mental health in the workplace and supporting businesses in recruiting and retaining staff.
The CCG is joining a growing number of Mindful Employer charter signatories, both locally and nationally.
Since Mindful Employer was launched in 2004, over 1,200 employers have at some point signed the Charter for Employers who are Positive About Mental Health.
A wide range of employers from all over the UK are involved in the initiative which gives businesses easier access to information, practical support, training and networks.
