Faye McGuinness

Head of Workplace Wellbeing Programmes at Mind @ Mind - the mental health charity

Panelist: Round the Fireplace – Fostering a positive mental health work environment

Faye joined Mind in 2015 to develop and implement a Cabinet-funded programme addressing the mental health of emergency services employees. The Blue Light Programme, now in its 4th year, has delivered a range of interventions to staff and volunteers across England and Wales. It has helped ambulance, fire, police and search and rescue services.

Now, as Head of Workplace Wellbeing Programmes, Faye not only leads on the strategy and development of Mind’s Workplace Wellbeing programmes but also leads on one of their biggest employee mental health programmes to date. Faye heads up the Heads Together Workplace Wellbeing programme at Mind, with funding from The Royal Foundation, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry – this iconic programme looks to provide employers with easy access to best practice employee mental health resources and to empower employees with the tools they need to support themselves in the workplace.

Faye is leading on Mind’s response to the Stevenson-Farmer review of mental health and employers ‘Thriving at Work’. She also supports a number of employers on how best to implement the core and enhanced standards, including the NHS.
