This stage involves taking stock of existing organisational policies and practices against seven building blocks which need to be in place to create a workplace environment inclusive of mental health, free from stigma and discrimination. You can find the building blocks in our workplace Self Assessment Tool, linked below.

Step 1 checklist

  • The first step is ensuring that you have senior management commitment to engage with the Programme.

  • Check our online cost calculator below and see how much your organisation could save.

  • At this stage register with us by completing the online application, which helps us gather a profile of your organisation. A member of the team will be in touch if we need any more information.

  • Once your application has been approved you can log into the portal and get started with the help of our guidance, tools and resources.

  • After the self-assessment and staff survey is complete the portal will analyse the results and provide you with a draft report.  This will include a traffic light system highlighting where you are performing well and indicating where improvements could be made, to help you prioritise your improvement plan.

  • You will also have the opportunity to run focus groups and add any key findings from these to your final report before sharing it with your colleagues.
