Mental Health is Everyone’s Business
Everyone has mental health in the same way as everyone has physical health. The focus is therefore on supporting all City workers to achieve our full potential, for ourselves, our families, our communities and the businesses for whom we work, throughout our working lives.
We believe business can take a leading role in building on the wave of change in society that is making mental health a subject that everyone can talk about without fear.
The City Mental Health Alliance’s vision is to help people at all levels in the City of London talk about mental health without fear of stigma. We wish for mental health to be recognised as a boardroom issue and considered essential to maximise business performance, critical to managing business risk and vital to safeguarding organisations’ people responsibilities. We believe that prevention should be recognised as equally as important as treatment to address mental health problems.
The City Mental Health Alliance is a collaborative venture founded by City businesses. Championed by senior leaders, the Alliance is business led and expert guided and aims to create a culture of good mental health for City workers, share best practice and increase mental health understanding.
