Mental Health and Stress Toolkits

The University of Exeter is committed to creating a positive work environment that promotes mental wellbeing, allowing colleagues to thrive at work and fulfil their potential. The Managing Mental Health and Stress Standard sets out processes for managing stress at the University and links to relevant resources and support (staff).

The Occupational Health Team has developed two evidence-based toolkits to help our colleagues maintain good mental wellbeing. They have been developed to give all colleagues, managers and leaders access to practical advice, guidance and signposting offered by OH, as well as helping them recognise issues early which can then be managed proactively.

They are part of a suite of toolkits and training including: Working with a Disability Toolkit and Supporting the Mental Wellbeing of your Team (online training). 

The University has Mindful Employer status. The Mindful Employer Charter is about recognising employers working towards better mental health in the workplace. By signing the Charter, employers are making a public declaration of their ambition to support the mental wellbeing of their staff by agreeing to set of commitments.

We are working within the framework of the University Mental Health Charter, in line with the Our People part of Strategy 2030. The Charter provides a set of evidence-informed principles to support universities across the UK in making mental health a university-wide priority.
