Workplace Wellbeing Show announces Mind as official Charity Partner

Workplace Wellbeing Show, hosted by Informa Markets, is delighted to announce Mind, the leading mental health charity, as its official Charity Partner.

Mind new logoMind is the ideal partner for Workplace Wellbeing Show, owing to the significant shared values between the charity and the event, including a desire to promote wellbeing best practice and level the playing field for mental health. Workplace Wellbeing Show, which is co-located with Safety & Health Expo and takes place from 17-19 May 2022, will work with Mind to broaden its reach and impact for professionals, including HR leaders who wish to foster better wellbeing in the workplace.

Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing a mental health problem. The organisation campaigns to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding. Founded in 1946, it has helped people across England and Wales, and won the patronage and endorsement of numerous organisations and individuals, including its current president Stephen Fry.

The charity also offers a comprehensive Workplace Wellbeing programme which aims to help people understand and start talking about the costs of neglecting mental wellbeing in the workplace. Mind offers free resources for employers to help improve mental wellbeing and employee engagement.

Charlotte Geoghegan, Head of Content for Workplace Wellbeing Show, said: “We are honoured to work with Mind to form a Charity Partnership for Workplace Wellbeing Show. Over the last seven decades, Mind has led the de-stigmatisation of mental health. Our programme at Workplace Wellbeing Show is designed to represent the multi-faceted nature of occupational wellbeing. This partnership with Mind underscores the importance of mental health within this, and a commitment to raising the profile of mental health in the workplace.”

Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at Mind, said: “The coronavirus pandemic has had a huge impact on the UK workforce, so there’s never been a more crucial time to promote and protect the wellbeing and mental health of staff. That is why we are delighted to be the Charity Partner for the Workplace Wellbeing Show. As the Government’s lockdown measures begin to relax, and many people return to their usual workplaces, they might need to re-adjust, which could be a challenge – investing in workplace wellbeing measures in the short and longer-term is vital. Those employers who do recognise the value of prioritising workplace wellbeing also find that it can result in a happier, more engaged and productive workforce, who are less likely to need to take time off sick.”
