We marked Time To Talk Day again this year with a series of events and activities alongside our Mental Health Network.

Time to Talk Day aims to reduce the stigma and discrimination that surrounds mental health and to encourage our colleagues to feel comfortable talking about mental health.

The Bank offers a range of services to promote mental wellbeing, including in-house staff counsellors. In addition our Mental Health Network, one of our employee-led diversity and inclusion networks, works with Human Resources and the staff counsellors to raise awareness and improve understanding around mental health conditions, and highlights the support available to staff.

To mark Time to Talk Day, TJ, a member of our Mental Health Network has published a blog giving advice to students and sharing his story.

A series of events have also been organised around the theme of wellbeing including a talk from Professor Kevin Fenton, Public Health England, about perspectives on mental health and various seminars on topics such as personal resilience and energy.

On World Mental Health Day, we released a short film featuring staff sharing their mental health lived experiences. The film forms part of the Bank’s commitment to the new City-wide Lord Mayor’s Appeal initiative, ‘This is Me in the City’ which aims to reduce stigma and discrimination towards mental health in the workplace and to raise awareness of wellbeing.
