This article describes the introduction of a staff health programme designed to create a shift in culture in a mental health service towards the inclusion of physical health. The 16-week programme offered staff cardiometabolic health assessments and interventions, including individual sessions with specialist staff, with goal setting around diet, exercise and sleep. Staff were reviewed after the programme and provided qualitative feedback. The article also outlines the feasibility of including a similar programme in other mental health services.
