HM Treasury is committed to the well-being and promotion of good mental health of its employees.

Information and training is provided to employees on the management of stress at work.

Other services available to Treasury staff include a staff support network, an occupational health advisor and access to a 24/7 confidential employee assistance programme. A wide range of therapies and clinics are also run on site which are available to staff to purchase. Staff surveys are used to monitor staff perceptions of workload and flexible working policies are in place to support work-life balance.
