Time to Talk about Mental Health- the Big Help supports the ‘Time to Change’ Campaign & ‘Time to Talk Day’ Thursday 1st February 2018

We have pledged our support for the ‘Time to Change’ movement to change the way we think and act about mental health.

For too long mental heath discrimination and stigma has meant many have suffered in silence. With 1 in 4 people experiencing mental health problems every year, mental ill health can happen to any of us – a friend, family member or work colleague.

You don’t have to be an expert to be supportive. It can be as simple as asking someone how they are doing, checking in with them, listening and not judging- just being there and being yourself.  We can all text, call and reach out to make that difference.

As an employer we are positive about mental health and wellbeing and ensuring that we make the time and space to support each other. We encourage everyone in the Big Help team to be positive about mental health. Remember, it doesn’t take much to step in and make the difference.

You can find about more about ‘Time to Change’ and find lots of useful resources at time-to-change-org.uk.  We can all play our part in making change happen.
