More about this class

To create an environment where conversations about mental health are commonplace, you need to make people aware of the issue. Many people have never thought about their mental health before so it’s important to make them aware of how important it is.

In this masterclass you will hear from pledged employers who will be sharing their expertise on how they’ve achieved success in this area. You will gain practical tips on how to run successful communications campaigns to raise awareness of mental health, and how to maintain momentum on the agenda. You will also have the opportunity to meet other organisations who are committed to changing how we think and act about mental health.

If you are interested in attending this class, please email us at employers@time-to-change.org.uk to register your interest and reserve a spot. Be sure to mention 'London' and the class title in your email so we can allocate space accordingly.

Priority will be given to pledged organisations that have not yet had the opportunity to attend a masterclass this year.

More about this class

It is critical that line managers feel confident having a conversation about mental health with their line reports. Increasing their capability to spot signs and symptoms in their team, and feel confident in discussing this with those who are struggling will help stop problems before they become more challenging.

You will hear from employers who will share their experience of equipping line managers to have these conversations, support their teams and encourage disclosure. You will be given ideas on how to apply this in your organisation and will also have the chance to meet other newly pledged organisations.

If you are interested in attending this class, please email us at employers@time-to-change.org.uk to register your interest and reserve a spot. Be sure to mention 'London' and the class title in your email so we can allocate space accordingly.

Priority will be given to pledged organisations that have not yet had the opportunity to attend a masterclass this year.

Sector Specific Masterclasses

We see the value of gathering organisations who work within a similar sector together to offer a more bespoke support. These sessions will cover how to use the Time to Change Campaign effectively within your organisation and your sector to develop a cultural shift around talking about mental health problems in the workplace. We see it as being important that these sessions have a mix of organisations. Employers who may be at the beginning of opening up about mental health in the workplace will join those who have already implemented some great initiatives. These sessions will be open to employers who have already signed the pledge and to those who have not.
