Health and Wellbeing - Time to Change

Around 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem this year yet too many people feel ashamed or isolated which can be as bad as the mental health problem itself. That's what we are looking to change and why we would like Time to Change Champions in the workplace.

Time to Change Champions will play a key role in helping to make mental health a normal topic of conversation, dispelling myths and making it easier for people to seek support.

 

Become a Time to Change Champion

We are seeking passionate employees, with or without experience of mental health problems, who want to join our campaign; support our Employer Pledge and run events and activities in the workplace to break down stigma, bust myths and get us all talking about our own mental health.


 

What you could gain from being a Champion

  • The knowledge that you are part of a movement to create positive change.

  • Being part of a network of like-minded individuals where you can learn and share knowledge. 

  • Increasing your understanding around wellbeing and fighting mental health stigma in the workplace.

  • Developing skills outside of your role and learning from your peers.

  • Increased confidence in public speaking about issues you are passionate about.

  • Helping to end mental health stigma in your workplace.
