This Place Minds
Welcome to This Place Minds, a useful resource for ideas, collaboration, information and legal insight on how we can create a supportive and understanding mental wellbeing culture.
Mental ill health is responsible for 72 million lost working days and costs approximately £35 billion each year. Being able to speak about these issues openly and creating a culture where people feel able to access support and help as early as possible becomes ever more important.
What is the aim?
We are committed to help foster workplaces that enhance mental wellbeing and build a culture where people can talk openly, safe in the knowledge that they will be met with support and understanding.
