Midlands Engine Mental Health and Productivity Pilot

What was the Mental Health and Productivity Pilot?

The Mental Health and Productivity Pilot implemented new workplace interventions at pilot organisations, and rolled out existing interventions in businesses across the Midlands Engine geography. The programme intended to help reduce mental health distress and break down the barriers to accessing care. Our aim was to reduce absence and incidences of reduced productivity due to poor mental health and provide effective, sensitive support for these staff within the workplace. The pilot also aimed to reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental health, opening up conversations around the subject within the work environment.

We have worked with businesses in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire (D2N2), Herefordshire, Shropshire (The Marches) and Staffordshire to help integrate effective mental health provision within the working environment. 

This project was funded by the Midlands Engine.

We are still able to work with your organisation to support the health and wellbeing of your workforce through the Work Health Hub.

We were delighted to take part in the pilot as part of our ongoing commitment to our team’s wellbeing. At TTK we want to promote good mental health and create a supportive environment, and we feel this initiative will provide the right tools to do that.
