Calling all local employers who want to make mental health a priority in their workplace

Ninety-five percent of employees calling in sick with stress gave a different reason.

That is why Time to Change, organised by Mind in West Essex, want to get all local employers in signing up to the Time to Change pledge, as this is simply something that cannot be ignored.

The process is simple - all we need is your time, and commitment to ensure everyone in your workplace feels safe and supported when it comes to talking about their mental health.

We would need to visit you to run you through the programme, and then support you through the construction of your action plans. We will then work with TTC to get them perfected, all ready for our celebration on 10 October.

We are able to provide FREE mental health training as part of this programme, delivered by Mind in West Essex. Therefore, it makes sense for all local employers to get involved and joining T Reed & Son, Waitrose, CVSU and Uttlesford District Council in making a stand in the reduction, and hopefully removal, of mental health stigma in the workplace and beyond.

What we want to achieve by the end of the project - which will be celebrated with an event on World Mental Health Day - is to have a number of local employers who feel that they have the tools and skills in place to be a thriving, happy and healthy place for people to work in, as a result of the action plans being both sustainable and realistic.  

If you would be interested or know any employers in the Uttlesford area who would be, please contact Sarah Bevan at timetochange@mindinwestessex.org.uk.
