About this pledge

We will promote positive mental wellbeing and reduce the stigma of mental illness across Pearson UK Schools.


To achieve this, we will:

  • Create a clear framework consisting of Advocates, Line Managers, HR and Mental Health First Aiders;
  • Improve understanding amongst managers how they can support staff members who may be experiencing mental ill health;
  • Raise awareness of the support that staff can access to maintain a positive wellbeing;
  • Utilise technology to run interactive campaigns throughout the year to highlight mental illness, support mental wellbeing and promote national campaigns (e.g. National Mental Health Awareness Days);
  • Give equal weighting to mental health and ensure it is evident in organisation values, behaviours, practices and policies.
