Mental Health Charter - Change the workplace not the worker

The NUT mental health charter is the Union's way of addressing the issues in schools and colleges which lead or contribute to mental ill-health in staff (e.g. excessive workload, bullying, discrimination, mishandled disciplinary procedures and negative working relationships with colleagues).

The charter aims to:

  • Put the focus on the workplace, not the worker;
  • Challenge employers to develop healthy workplaces and monitor progress;
  • Make the promotion of good mental health at work a health and safety issue;
  • Promote a collective approach when dealing with unhealthy workplaces.
