Speaking following the launch of the ‘Mental Health At Work’ initiative, Sara Vaughan, E.ON UK’s Political and Regulatory Affairs Director, said: “At E.ON we’re committed to supporting our colleagues’ emotional and physical wellbeing. It’s crucial that mental health becomes something people feel as comfortable talking to their employers about as physical health and wellbeing.

“Through offering specific training for managers so they can have better conversations with their employees about mental health issues, running awareness-raising roadshows and offering an online community where colleagues can come together and share their experiences, we hope we’ve successfully created a working environment where people can be open about their mental health and feel supported.

“We’ve achieved Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing Index Award in recognition of the achievements we’ve made in promoting mental health, which is testament to everything we’re doing to encourage an open culture that puts real stories at the heart of our activities to empower those with mental health issues and drive cultural change.

“But we know there’s more to be done. That’s why we’re delighted to welcome the new ‘Mental Health at Work’ initiative and the additional focus and support this provides for people who need support with their mental health.”

The Mental Health at Work initiative is a new online gateway that will change the way workplace mental health is approached across the UK. The initiative is the product of a collaboration between a range of programme partners, curated by the mental health charity, Mind, and funded by The Royal Foundation as part of the Heads Together programme.
