Mental health is one of the greatest causes of sickness absence in the UK#SmashingTheStigma
InsideOut is structured as a community interest company and all profits will be reinvested into our missions of ending the stigma of mental ill-health in the workplace and promoting best practice in relation to managing mental wellness.
Why We Exist
There has been a growing social movement around how we think and behave about mental health. Significant progress has been made in the entertainment and sporting worlds and, recently, we have heard the Royal Family speak out. However, there is still much to do in the business world. We need more executives to share their stories so that employees feel more comfortable in also speaking about their mental health. InsideOut exists to help achieve this by encouraging executives to bring what is on the inside.. out.
What We Do
The Inside Out List
Each year, in partnership with our Media Partner we publish a list of executives who have shared their experience of mental ill-health. The list is designed to celebrate each business executive who has decided to be open, thus playing their part in ending the stigma and helping others in their organisation speak out and seek help. We will grow the list each year, creating a ripple effect of more and more executives speaking out until it is as normal to talk about mental ill-health in the business world as it is to disclose a broken leg.
Mental Wellness Best Practice Insights
We bring together the best practice around improving mental wellness in the workplace to our members. Aside from being the right thing to do, improving mental wellbeing in the workplace is one of the most significant performance improvement gains that we can make in the workplace. Our corporate membership structure allows us to commission and disseminate research in our annual report on best practice on mental wellness in the workplace.
Our InsideOut events showcase role models, provide a forum to discuss challenges and share successes and allow us to learn lessons from other areas such as the sporting world.
Membership of InsideOut will give your company access to the Mentoring Program where we use a buddy system to allow an executive who has spoken out to provide guidance and support to someone who is in the process of doing so. This further fuels the ripple effect that we are creating with experience being passed along an ever expanding wave.
