Mates in Mind
Mates in Mind is a leading UK charity raising awareness and addressing the stigma of poor mental health. We promote and lead on the development of positive mental wellbeing within the workplace. Mates in Mind works across industries, focusing on construction, as well as related sectors including transport, logistics, manufacturing, energy, fire and security and others. We campaign for change and undertake research focused on the importance of a holistic model starting with prevention and identification of contributory factors and have been recognised in the National Suicide Prevention Strategy and APPG for Men & Boys Mental Health.
Discover how we work with these sectors.
Mates in Mind provides clear information to employers about the available support and guidance on mental health and wellbeing, and how they can proactively address this within their organisations. We work collaboratively with our Supporters to develop a proactive prevention strategy. We do this by providing the skills, clarity and confidence to employers on how to raise awareness and understanding of, and reduce the stigma surrounding, mental health in the workplace and importantly create the right culture and leadership where people can thrive.

We also support the construction workers, line managers and business owners of the future through Our Let’s Talk Mental Wellbeing Programme for apprentices which increases awareness of mental health and wellbeing, to instil a confidence amongst apprentices in knowing where to seek support themselves, and how to start and manage that difficult conversation about mental health in order to break down the stigma that surrounds it.
