Green light on mental health from Bank of England

Our Threadneedle Street office was lit green to mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week.

Our Mental Health Network are helping to raise awareness and to end the stigma of mental health by encouraging staff to wear green ribbons throughout the week and holding a series of events on wellbeing. The green ribbon campaign is part of ‘This is Me in the City’ initiative that we supported last year with colleagues sharing their own mental health stories in a short film. 70,000 people across the City and beyond are expected to be wearing their ribbons.

Chris Salmon, Executive Sponsor of our Mental Health Network said:

“We are proud to be wearing our green ribbons during mental health week, to help raise awareness and tackle the stigma around mental health. Our offices on Threadneedle Street were lit green to kick off the week and we hope that by showing our support for this important issue, colleagues in the Bank, and across the City, will feel able to speak up and seek help when experiencing a mental health problem.”

The Bank offers a range of services to promote mental wellbeing, including in-house staff counsellors. In addition, the 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.
