Mental health - PwC comments on the Prime Minister's speech on mental health

Published at 11:53 AM on 09 January 2017

Beth Taylor, PwC's mental health leader, comments on Theresa May's speech on mental health and the role of employers:

“We welcome the Prime Minister's focus on mental health and recognise the vital role the government and companies have to play in offering people the support they need.

“As a large employer PwC recognises it is important we help our people take care of themselves by providing tools and guidance to support their mental and physical health. As such, we have multiple programmes in place to help our people build resilience and promote mental wellbeing in both their personal and professional lives.

“We have numerous mental health advocates in offices throughout the country, offering our people advice and support and encouraging a culture in the workplace where it is acceptable to talk about and destigmatise mental health.

“We communicate with our people throughout the year with resources, information and events to raise awareness. This includes our monthly ‘Green light to Talk’ campaign, which focuses on different aspects of mental health each month. These have included conversations on anxiety, eating disorders, men’s mental health and panic attacks.”
