Watford Borough Council has signed an employer pledge with Time to Change, the growing social movement run by charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness which supports people to open up to mental health problems. By signing, the council is committing to change the way we all think and act about mental health in the workplace.
The signing ceremony took place at Watford Town Hall and representatives from the Council, including the Managing Director, pledged their support to Time to Change with an action plan of activity that will help to break the silence that surrounds mental health in the workplace.
Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “Every year, 1 in 4 of us will suffer with a mental health problem but only half that number will ever seek help. We need to break down the barriers surrounding mental ill health and currently prevent people from getting treatment.
