The Mental Health at Work commitment offers organisations a way to publicly declare that mental health is a priority. The commitment is made up of six standards, based on the Thriving at Work standards and developed with the knowledge and expertise of mental health charities, leading employers and trade organisations.

“It has never been more important for organisations to prioritise the mental wellbeing of their employees. The Mental Health at Work Commitment provides organisations with an opportunity to commit to this priority and take the necessary and important steps to effectively support their employees.” 

Peter Cheese, chief executive officer at the CIPD
