Bank of England releases film to combat stigma around mental health
The Bank of England has published a short film sharing its employees’ experience with mental health conditions to coincide with World Mental Health Day.

Employees at the Bank will have access to a number of seminars and workshops related to mental wellbeing over the coming days in addition to its existing services including in-house staff counsellors.

The Bank has also established the Mental Health Network, an employee-led initiative which works with human resources and staff counsellors to raise awareness and improve understanding of mental health issues.

The film is in support of the London Mayor’s initiative, ‘This is Me in the City’ which aims to reduce stigma and discrimination towards mental health in the workplace and to raise awareness of wellbeing.

Chris Salmon, executive director for markets and executive sponsor of the Bank’s Mental Health Network, said: “I am really pleased that the Bank is one of the first organisations to produce and release a “This is Me in the City” film, which aims to contribute to the wider changes required in society to end the stigma around mental health.

“Those featured in this film have shown great courage by sharing their stories, and we hope this encourages colleagues and others around the City to feel comfortable about seeking support and help when they experience a mental health problem.”

The film can be viewed on the Bank of England’s website or Youtube channel.
