10 October 2018 - UK's Intelligence Agencies Unite to Support 'Time To Change'

World Mental Health Day

On World Mental Health Day, the UK's Intelligence Agencies (MI6, MI5 and GCHQ) are coming together to support Time To Change's goal of breaking the silence and ending the stigma around mental health, with the Heads signing the Employer pledge.

One in four people in Britain experience a mental health problem every day and many suffer in silence. Whether that is people in our organisations or in wider society, we are committed to changing the way everyone thinks and acts about mental health.

With the nature of our work, the mental wellbeing of our colleagues is vital. We will continue to encourage open conversations about mental health, make improvements to our policies and procedures, and strive to foster an even more supportive and inclusive culture where everyone can be themselves and feel supported every day.
