Continuing to shine a light on mental health awareness
The stigma often associated with mental health means people may not recognise what’s happening or are too afraid to ask for help. At PwC, we’re proudly committed to ending this stigma.
Now in its fifth year, our Green Light to Talk campaign is running during Mental Health Awareness Week (18 - 22 May 2020). This year, with the majority of us working from home, we're anticipating a virtual sea of green, as our people add a green ribbon to their email signature, to show their support for mental health. Plus we'll be taking to social media again, with our #MyMindMatters campaign, encouraging our people to share how they are taking care of their mental wellbeing at this challenging time.
"Our focus on mental health, particularly through our Green Light to Talk campaign, is one of the ways we show we care, and is crucial in empowering our people to speak up when they need help. Normalising conversations about mental health is good for our people, and for our business."
Our latest 'This is Me' video looks at some of our people’s experiences of mental health issues within different cultures and communities. Members of our faith networks share their stories to encourage more conversations about mental wellbeing, to help tackle taboos and ensure that people get the support they need.
Our 'This is Me' campaign was created to mark World Mental Health Day 2016. We were one of 50 companies taking part in this initiative, run by the Lord Mayor's appeal team.
