Lourdes IT supports Time to Change
At Lourdes IT, working with young people across our schools, and working with our colleagues within our team and wider community, mental health is something more and more of us are experiencing.
We are commited to not only working with our schools to ensure that they can offer a safer online enciroment for young people, but also that they can use innovative ways of making young people feel safe when asking for help.
Within our team, we also support team members and openly talk about Mental Health, and the importance of well being and self care to manage feelings in a particularly demanding role.
Time to Change is a growing social movement working to change the way we all think and act about mental health problems. We’ve already reached millions of people and begun to improve attitudes and behaviour.
Despite the progress we’ve made, we know that many people still don’t consider mental health relevant to them. They don’t believe mental health problems are likely to affect them or people they know.
But the reality is that mental health can affect anyone. Statistically, 1 in 4 of us will experience a mental health problem in any given year. That’s why our work is so important. No one should have to fear being treated differently because of a mental health problem.
