The Mindful EmployerCertification (MEC) Program is an initiative that seeks to challenge, highlight and cultivate company cultures that put mental health as a workplace priority. The Mindful EmployerCertification ensures that employers are in compliance with existing legislation while challenging them to develop, implement or enhance sound policies and practices around mental health. The MEC Program begins with a baseline assessment of your company’s existing policies and practices and measures them against a set of key standards aimed at fostering a mentally healthy workplace.   By providing a grading system, certificates, and badges, your Mindful EmployerCertification provides your organization with a tangible way of making a strong statement about your commitment to your staff’s mental wellness.
