Time to Change

Update from the Employers Team at Time to Change

World Mental Health Day Activity Pack

The theme of this year’s event on 10th October is suicide and suicide prevention.

This year we invite you to consider how you can create learning opportunities for your staff, raise their awareness and overall level of understanding of mental health and specifically address the stigma around suicide.

Our new workplace pack is full of activities that you can look to deliver, alongside resources to support the promotion of your commitment to addressing mental health stigma and the events your employees can get involved in.
