About this pledge
Destigmatising mental health issues and making it simple, personal and fair for our people and our customers to be open about what that means for them is a key commitment for us. Our purpose is to help people and businesses prosper. To do that we need to be able to have empathetic, honest conversations with people and be equipped to signpost them to the support and guidance available.
We’ll do that by raising awareness and understanding around mental health issues, actively promoting the benefits of physical health and positive psychological wellbeing; encouraging everyone to lead a healthy lifestyle and supporting them during challenging times. We will provide training for managers and front-line colleagues as well as giving all colleagues access to a range of guides and tools to support them.
