Time to Change
It's time to talk about mental health
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. You can read Imperial's Time to Change Action Plan (pdf).
What is Time to Change?
Time to Change is a national anti-stigma campaign run 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
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, and celebrates Mental Health Awareness Week each year.
We have also been selected as one of sixty organisations to be part of a leading Pledge alumni group. This will give the College the opportunity to share best practice and learn from other leading employers.
