From Martha Clowes, Mindful Employer Coordinator for Leeds.
“Hi there, my name is Martha Clowes and I am the new Mindful Employer Coordinator for Leeds, based at Workplace Leeds (part of Leeds Mind).
Mindful Employer provides businesses and organisations with easier access to information and support for staff who experience stress, anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. In partnership with this national initiative, Mindful Employer Leeds offers advice and guidance to employers on good practice around mental health in the workplace. The Mindful Employer Coordinator runs local Network events, shares information and resources, as well as providing 1 to 1 support for employers to implement positive changes in their workplace.
My second day in the job was spent at the Mindful Employer Leeds Conference 2018 and it was great to see how many employers in the private, public and third sector are working to make mental health sustainable in the workplace. This enthusiasm has been shown by every organisation I have worked with so far and it is very exciting to be involved in this growing project.
I am looking forward to working with employers across Leeds to ensure good mental health practice in our city. If you have any questions or want to find out how to become a Mindful Employer then please do get in touch with me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0113 230 2631″
