Mental Wellbeing Charter



Mental Wellbeing Charter

Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce have launched a Mental Wellbeing Charter for local businesses wishing to learn good practice and pledge to support the good mental health of their employees.

“Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce are undertaking important work to help raise awareness of the role and benefits for businesses in promoting and supporting good mental health in their organisations.

“I invite businesses of all sizes to sign up to the Chambers Mental Wellbeing Charter and pledge their commitment to building a positive mental wellbeing culture which in turn tackles stigma and builds trust, ensuring that the right help is available to anyone seeking mental health support, wherever they are and whenever they need it.”

 The RT Hon Theresa May MP

Our Commitments are:

  • We commit to providing an environment for our employees to thrive in and encourage those who may be struggling to speak up and seek help.
  • Through effective people management and training we foster trust amongst our employees, supervisors and leaders, to help create a workspace where employees feel comfortable to self-identify as a person with a mental illness.
  • We understand that culture and leadership are pivotal to creating a healthy and thriving workplace.
  • Our leaders are open about mental health and mental illness (be that through personal stories, or education)


  • We will treat those experiencing mental illness as we would with someone experiencing aphysical illness in terms of support, time off, and a supportive return to work.
  • We will be honest and support people to live with ambiguity and uncertainty.
  • We will actively risk assess those who are most at risk of developing or have an existing mental health condition.
  • We will support our employees as parents and carers to enable their children to be well during this time.
  • We will be a learning organisation – establishing learning relationships with other organisations and sharing what we have learned.

Please email David Saab on to pledge your organisation to our Mental Wellbeing Charter.
