Time to Change
What is Time to Change?
In 2014 Imperial signed the Time to Change pledge to demonstrate our commitment to ending the discrimination and breaking the silence around mental health issues. Time to Change is a national social movement and campaign, lead by the leading mental health charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, which aims to:
- Improve public attitudes towards mental health problems
- Reduce discrimination
- Increase the confidence of those with mental health problems
In 2018 Imperial also signed the Charter for Employers who are Positive about Mental Health, which is one element of the MINDFUL EMPLOYER initiative.
What is Imperial doing?
Imperial has a range of mental health and wellbeing support in place, including our network of trained Mental Health First Aiders (look out for their green lanyards!), and marks Mental Health Awareness Week each year.
