TTC WALES CHAMPIONS RECEIVE EMPLOYEE CHAMPION TRAINING

TTC WALES CHAMPIONS RECEIVE EMPLOYEE CHAMPION TRAINING

9 JANUARY 2019 14:55

E.G. Lewis Group are proud to announce that on Wednesday 9th January, our Time To Change Champions completed the TTC Wales Employee Champion Training course at our headquarters in Neath, Llandarcy.

E.G. Lewis Group decided to commit to this training since ‘signing the Time to Change Wales pledge’ at the end of 2018, with our commitment to #EndStigma and encouraging individuals within the workplace to talk to each other around the topic of mental health.

Time To Change Champions use their experience of mental health problems to change the way people think and act about mental health. Being a champion is a flexible and voluntary commitment. You can do what you have time for, and what you’re comfortable doing.

The Time to Change Wales campaign is delivered by a partnership of two leading Welsh mental health charities.

  • Mind Cymru is Mind's force for change in Wales. Informed in everything they do by people with direct experience of emotional distress they campaign vigorously to create a society that promotes good mental health and that challenges mental health stigma.
  • Hafal (meaning 'equal') is the principal organisation in Wales working with individuals recovering from serious mental illness and their families. They are managed by the people they support - individuals with serious mental illness and their carers.

Time To Change Champions on behalf of E.G. Lewis Group include: Dillwyn Evans (Safety Health & Environment Manager), Michael Stewart (Health & Safety Advisor), Ben Jenkins (Business Development & Marketing Coordinator) and Hannah Lewis (HR & Training Manager)

Break the culture of silence that surrounds mental health and talk to your employer.
