In 2016 Time to Change issued the report “Creating mentally healthy workplaces” The research publicised an important insight into workplace wellbeing and the role of the manager.

“It is important to continue a campaign to open up conversations about mental health and sharing best practice between colleagues, managers and across organisations to increase support for people with mental health problems. Leaders who get it right are confident in communicating about mental health in their workplace. They take responsibility to commit to cultural improvements, participate in training themselves, and break stigma about mental health and career progression.

Some top level leaders were open their own experience of mental health problems which normalised the conversation and reduced stigma. They became the role models for positive health management in their organisation and inspired other managers.”
