We are proud to announce that here at Lockhart Garratt, we are making a pledge to end stigma surrounding mental health.
As supporters of the Time to Change Campaign, we are joining mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness to help bring about change in the way mental health is understood.
The campaigns crucial goal is to end stigma by raising awareness, promoting shared experiences and providing more accessible, visible support to those who are suffering.
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem in any given year. In our organisation we realise the importance of expanding our knowledge and enhancing our support systems to provide the best possible work environment for our staff.
This summer we will be working with Time to Change to submit an action plan and sign their Employers Pledge. Throughout the coming year, we will be taking more action to raise awareness, host fund raisers and provide training days for our management teams. Through the Employers Pledge we are committing to end stigma in the workplace and ensure no one at Lockhart Garratt experiences discrimination.
