Mates in Mind is a registered charity that enables organisations, of any size, to improve their workforces’ mental health. They do this by providing the skills, clarity and confidence to employers on how to raise awareness, improve understanding and address the stigma that surrounds mental health.
Mates in Mind was the result of a Health in Construction Leadership Group summit in early 2017 for construction industry CEOs and senior leaders who voted overwhelmingly to improve the mental wellbeing of its workforce. At an event in January 2017, Mates in Mind was launched, and the pilot phase was started. Mates in Mind was featured in the Thriving at Work report published in October 2017.Working alongside partners, sector leaders and a growing community of Supporters, their work is delivering effective change across construction, related industries and more widely. They bring insight and expertise that is improving the understanding of mental health across hundreds of workplaces.
Importantly, their approach enables individuals to understand how, when and where they can get support.
