Recruit well. Start well. Stay well

With support tailored to your individual needs, we’re here to help you achieve your goals. 

At Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, we won’t give up until everyone experiencing a mental health problem gets support and respect.

Hull and East Yorkshire Mind is happy to be working alongside Hull City Council on a new project to support individuals and employers in Hull. Our brand new Work Well service is here to help individuals to improve their mental health, raise aspirations, and to achieve their personal goals. This includes helping young people aged 16-24 into to education, training or employment, helping people already in work to improve their mental health and retain their employment as well as engaging with local employers to help make mental health a priority in the workplace, by providing training and resources.

    Recruit to work

    1 in 6 people will experience poor mental health at work. We can help you to make mental health a priority in your workplace.

    Good mental health at work and good management go hand in hand and there is strong evidence to suggest that workplaces with high levels of mental wellbeing are far more productive. For most businesses, we know that there is often a lack of knowledge or resources that can prevent them from taking action – but it doesn’t have to be this way. We can work with you to ensure that your employees are happy and healthy – resulting in higher productivity and lower absence rates. Hull and East Yorkshire Mind can help you make mental health a priority. Paying attention and showing commitment to workplace wellbeing has never been more important.
