About this Event

Halton’s Time to Change Hub is hosting a FREE event to discuss the importance of mental health in the workplace but more importantly what you can do to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination. Mental ill health is the leading cause of sickness absence in the UK with costs to employers of up to £42 billion a year. Stigma and discrimination is the main reason 49% of staff would give a physical reason when ringing in sick rather than disclose they are struggling with their mental health.

Time to Change Halton hub is a group of partners working together to tackle mental health stigma and discrimination in Halton with the support of the national movement Time to Change.

Encouraging staff to talk about mental health can make a real difference to:

  • Sickness absence rates and presenteeism
  • Productivity
  • Wellbeing

Join us to learn more about the Time to Change Employer Pledge from the Director of Time to Change, Jo Loughlin and hear from a local time to change champion about their story of recovery and how work played a part. There will be time for questions with our panel of local Employers from Anthonys Travel, Halton Housing, and Co-op Distribution Centre to discuss importance of mental health in the workplace and what employers can do. And finally, take the opportunity to network with local partners and learn about the support which is available locally.
