Eastleigh Borough Council has signed a pledge to improve attitudes towards mental health and tackle discrimination, during Mental Health Awareness week.
Chief Executive, Nick Tustian, was joined by Elizabeth White Ripley and Dan Angus of Solent Mind, together with Helen Coleman, the Council’s Healthy Communities Section Manager, to sign the Time to Change Employer's Pledge.
Time to Change is a national initiative led by the charities, Mind and Rethink. The Council is one of over 480 organisations nationally who have signed the pledge, which includes a commitment to take the health and wellbeing of our staff seriously and be committed to tackling the stigma around mental health.
The Council has also developed an action plan which includes training for staff and managers, and information about sources of support and activities to promote good mental health.
