A mentally healthy movement is essential for individual health, collective wellbeing and productivity. The wellbeing of Amnesty employees, volunteers and activists is a key factor in determining the long-term effectiveness and sustainability of our movement. By implementing wellbeing measures to complement other health and safety measures, we can ensure that we are all safe, healthy and engaged.
