AHM Celebrate Time to Talk Day
Time to Talk Day took place on 7th Feb 2019, and encouraged individuals and organisations to talk about mental health and help break down stigmas.
The AHM team celebrated with tea and cake with conversation starters about mental health. Some members of the team chose to share their personal mental health stories with the wider team or with each other, which sparked further conversations and understanding.
Posts were scheduled throughout the day on the AHM intranet sharing details of mental health support services, and the Mindful Employer Employee Helpline which is available as part of AHM's membership of the Mindful Employer Plus Scheme, for employees who are feeling generally low or depressed.
Senior managers committed to learning more about mental health at work through online resources. This has led to the roll out of mental health at work training for the whole team via See Me Scotland.
Feedback showed that the team were grateful for the opportunity to share and learn more about mental health, and that AHM takes mental health seriously as an employer.
