Mental Health and Productivity Pilot (MHPP)

The Mental Health and Productivity Pilot aims to raise awareness of mental health in the workplace and the support that is available to employers and employees around better workplace mental health.



The Mental Health and Productivity Pilot will implement new workplace interventions at pilot organisations, and rollout existing interventions in businesses across the Midlands Engine geography. The programme is intended to help reduce mental health distress and break down the barriers to accessing care. Our aim is to reduce absence and incidences of reduced productivity due to poor mental health and provide effective, sensitive support for these staff within the workplace. The pilot also aims to reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with mental health, opening up conversations around the subject within the work environment.

We are now working with businesses in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire (D2N2), Herefordshire, Shropshire (The Marches) and Staffordshire to help integrate effective mental health provision within the working environment. We welcome enquiries from businesses of any size and will work with you to create a ‘road map’ of support for your employees – nurturing a positive culture that develops strength in the workplace.

By participating in this pilot programme, we can work with you to reduce rates of absence due to mental health related issues and increase productivity, whilst promoting a culture of support and inclusivity for all staff.

Local Resource Packs are also available for Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin
