A CHARITY has vowed to support workers by changing the way it thinks about mental health.

Maldon and District CVS has signed the Time to Change pledge to demonstrate commitment to supporting staff’s mental health.

Time to Change is a social movement aiming to end mental health stigma.

CVS director Sarah Troop said: “At any time one in four people will be experiencing mental health issues so it is very likely that people within our staff and volunteer team will be among this figure.

“We want to ensure that people who work with and for us feel that they can speak openly about any issues they are experiencing.”
