On Wednesday, 18 April 2018, 4YP signed the Time to Change Employer Pledge.

Time to Change is a national awareness campaign focusing on breaking down stigma of mental health by encouraging open, supportive conversation.

4YP's Chief Executive, Tibbs Pinter, and Wellbeing Clinical Manager Nancy Merfeld signed the pledge to raise awareness of our commitment to the initiative.

They were joined by colleagues, volunteers, young people, and a special guest - Time To Change's Regional Coordinator, Yvonne Edge.

Supporting young people's emotional and mental health on a daily basis, 4YP is well versed in the issues that can have an impact - both positive and negative - and we welcome this opportunity to encourages us all to support each other.

As part of our commitment, we will be offering a range of in-house wellbeing events, such as yoga. We are also implementing a strategy for support and raising awareness of how to look out for signs that someone might be struggling.
