Are you hoping to bring about positive change and tackle provider mental health stigma in your organisation?
Would you like to develop a more inclusive workplace?
At in2gr8mentalhealth, we offer tailored consulting services to NHS Trusts, professional bodies, training courses and other organisations to bring about change for the better from within the system. Unfortunately, mental health stigma is still widespread and our work has showed us that mental health professionals with lived experience of mental health difficulties can face stigma and discrimination in the workplace. Many mental health professionals speak to us about how there can often be an expectation to leave a part of their identity (their lived experience) at the "professional door", because of the stigma that still surrounds it.
We work on the premise that we are all human, regardless of our job role and responsibilities. Professional training does not make us immune to the challenges that life can bring and our lived experience of mental health difficulties can be valued both on our own individual journeys and in the organisations we work within. Our consulting services help organisations think systemically about how to make sure individuals working within the organisation feel supported, valued and nurtured in all aspects of their personal and professional identities.
We offer a range of consulting services including, but not limited to:
Advice on policy development;
Audit and research;
Helping you create and manage staff networks centred around lived experience of mental health difficulties;
Advice on job adverts and recruitment;
Increasing organisational awareness of lived experience of mental health difficulties in mental health professionals;
Helping you set up and promote inclusive supervision and reflective spaces for staff; and
Helping to destigmatise lived experience of mental health difficulties in your workplace.
Through our work, we know that many mental health professionals with lived experience of mental health difficulties decide to leave the NHS and other organisations due to the negative impact stigma can have on their mental health and identity. Through our consulting services, we help to promote more inclusive organisations that have better awareness of lived experience as an asset to the individual and the organisation. By creating inclusive cultures, we can have a positive impact on recruitment and retention.
