About this pledge

Spelthorne Borough Council will take the Time to Change Pledge to demonstrate our commitment as an organisation to breaking down barriers of speaking openly about mental health in the workplace and to assist us in providing a supportive working environment for our employees.

In order to support our employees we plan to run a programme of activities relating to workplace health and wellbeing with an initial focus on mental health, and to train our managers so that they feel comfortable discussing mental health with their team members. Along with the programme we will launch and maintain a communications campaign to encourage employees to raise issues of mental ill health without feeling stigmatised or judged.
