Trust employees come together for workplace mental health film
Published: 26 October 2018
Anyone can be affected, mental health issues does affect your colleagues and friends at work, they aren’t immune!
Paul Norrish a Time To Talk Champion at the Trust said “We wanted to challenge how organisations such as ours think and talk about mental health in the workplace. We had plenty of staff come forward to get involved in the film, from hospital caterers through to consultants – all wanting to do their part to help break the silence. Sadly, too many still think there is a stigma attached to mental health and won’t talk to someone or seek help.”
The 50 second film was premiered at the Trust on World Mental Health Day on the 10th October 2018.
It is hoped that the short film will start or open up the opportunity for conversations. Encouraging those colleagues living with a mental health issue to speak up about their experiences.
