It's Time to talk! Raising awareness of mental health
The Time to Talk campaign is about bringing together, with the right ingredients, to have a conversation about mental health. Whether that is tea, biscuits and close friends or a room full of people challenging mental health stigma.
Our Occupational Health and Wellbeing team hosted a Time to Talk meet and greet session for all of our main sites in Bolton, Bristol and Stevenage in recognition of the Time to Change campaign. With our Mental Health First Aiders and Allies in attendance we encouraged our employees to talk about their mental health, to learn more around the subject and to share their experiences.
We have invested in breaking the stigma around mental health and our Mental Health and Wellbeing Allies have been trained with the appropriate skills to listen and offer support, when things are really getting a colleague down.
There was a great turn out and great support shown for this worthy cause throughout MBDA and we look forward to continuing our efforts to improve the well-being of our community.
