About this pledge

On Mental Health Awareness week, we recognise the importance of tackling the stigma associated with mental health. That’s why this year Morgan Sindall Investments has cemented its commitment by signing up to the Time to Change Employer pledge. We are taking proactive steps to create a more open and supportive culture and positive mental health in the workplace. Our strategy includes:

• Establishing and cross functional group of mental health and wellbeing champions to take forward the mental health and wellbeing agenda within the workplace. • Our line managers and mental health champions will be trained in Mental Health first aid. • Implementing a Mental Health at work policy and updating associated policies to ensure staff are supported. • Running bi-monthly mental health awareness & wellbeing link and learn sessions to discuss mental health topics and enable staff to share their experiences. • An internal platform on the intranet which will have a variety of information to support staff mental health and wellbeing • Encouraging participation in fundraising events for the Alzheimer’s Society
