Solutions 4 Health was proud to be support My Whole Self, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England’s exciting new campaign for workplace culture change.
My Whole Self called for people to be empowered to bring their whole self to work -because it’s better for wellbeing and better for business. The highest performing workplaces are supportive and inclusive.
Putting diversity and inclusion at the centre of mental health and wellbeing creates a culture where people can be themselves at work. This helps us to feel more engaged, to think bolder, find common ground, and work more effectively together.
This is backed up by Google’s landmark Aristotle study, which found that ‘psychological safety’ is one of five key elements that enables a team to excel. Teams that feel safe and connected work better together and to do this they need a working environment that allows them to be authentic and show their whole self.
My Whole Self is called on organisations to join the support in the build up to My Whole Self Day on March 18 when people across the country will be encouraged to bring their whole self to work and share a My Whole ‘Selfie’ on social media.
