Welcome to Mates in Mind

Established in 2016 by the Health in Construction Leadership Group (HCLG) with the support of the British Safety Council, Mates in Mind charity exists to improve the mental health and wellbeing of workplaces across the UK.

We do this by providing the skills, clarity and confidence to employers on how to raise awareness, improve understanding and address the stigma of mental ill-health within the workplace. 

We believe that there is no health, without mental health.

Our Impact

Mates in Mind has an ambitious goal – to reach 100,000 workers in the first year, and by 2025, we aim to have reached 75% of the construction industry. 

During our first two years of action, we enabled hundreds of organisations within construction to transform the mental health culture of their workplaces. Through our tailored programme, we supported organisations of all sizes to start vital conversations about mental health.

Due to our successes within the construction sector, we have gained recognition across a range of industries. As a result of this, Mates in Mind have expanded our focus to include workers in industries beyond construction, enabling all UK workplaces to drive a positive change. However, whilst we are delighted to be supporting organisations across additional sectors, we remain committed to supporting construction and achieving our initial target of reaching 75% of the industry by 2025 and will continue our mission to transform the construction sector, spreading our message and providing the ongoing support needed for organisations to act.  

OUR VISION: Positive mental health in and through work.

OUR MISSION: Supporting organisations to create environments and cultures that promote positive mental health, because everyone matters.
