We are championing health and wellbeing

Since taking the Time To Change Wales (TTCW) pledge in 2017, we have run two training days, the first by a TTCW representative, and the second by Sally, our Area Manager from Ceredigion.

We currently have ten members of staff trained as champions, who promote openness about mental health throughout the organisation through our staff Facebook pages, intranet and in person at events.

Mandy, Chief Executive says: “I believe it’s important for staff to be supported, and to feel like they can talk openly and honestly about their mental health. I want to be part of the change that inspires others to end discrimination that can surround mental ill health.”

The champions have had a positive impact on staff by raising visibility of mental ill health. They have also reported feeling empowered as they now have the knowledge to support their colleagues.

Martin, Cardiff Assistant Team Manager says: “I chose to become a Champion because I know that receiving a little help can make a huge difference. Even one conversation can change someone’s life for the better.”

Sam, Bridgend Support Worker says: “I know that talking to someone who has gone through similar experiences can be beneficial. I want to make a change in mirus and in Wales.”
