Tackling mental health
1 in 4 of us will experience mental health problems this year yet many people still do not believe problems are likely to affect them or anyone they know. But mental health problems can affect any of us - directly or otherwise. And, without the support from those around us, this can really have an impact on us at home and work. As part of our commitment to being a Responsible Business, we will be launching a year-long campaign of activities to encourage people to talk about and proactively manage their mental health and support those around them including our students.
The theme of our campaign is ‘In Your Corner’ and is part a bigger national campaign by Time to Change, a growing movement that’s changing how we all think and act about mental health. We will be signing Time for Change’s Employer Pledge and over the coming weeks and months we will be undertaking a range of activities and events from awareness raising and staff training and development to mindfulness sessions and gym challenges.
Together we can get people thinking and talking about mental health.
