One week left to complete MIMHC's mortgage industry mental health survey

The Mortgage Industry Mental Health Charter (MIMHC) is urging “even more” employees to complete its annual mental health survey before entries close on Friday, 26th April.

The Mortgage Industry Mental Health Survey 2024 provides industry employees with opportunity to share their real-life emotional and psychological experiences of working in the financial sector.

Based on the survey’s findings, MIMHC hopes that employers will subsequently implement initiatives and support strategies which will contribute to even healthier workplaces and working practices.

In total, 15 questions comprise this year's survey which gauge opinion on highly relevant topics including workplace stress, sleep patterns, personal contentment and whether their employer’s mental health and wellbeing provision has improved.

MIMHC was established in 2021 specifically to create a culture of openness and compassion surrounding mental health for all mortgage professionals through greater understanding, discussion and support.

The not-for-profit organization was founded by Crystal Specialist Finance, Coreco, Chartwell Mortgage Services, Landbay, Brightstar, Knowledge Bank and SimplyBiz Mortgages and now has over 120 signatories.

MIMHC co-founder and group sales director at Crystal Specialist Finance, Jason Berry (pictured above), said: “We’ve already had an excellent response from industry professionals this year – but we’re hoping that even more will now share their views to help shape the sector’s future before the survey closes on 26th April.

“All entries are anonymous, and this is everyone’s chance to make their views heard.

“The survey yields invaluable insights about the emotional and psychological issues that really count – from stress and anxiety to financial worries.

“These findings will be turned into a white paper which will be shared among our members during Mental Health Awareness Week 2024, which runs from 13th to 19th May, to enable them to implement appropriate initiatives and support packages.”
