Our Values & Vision
We want to provide spaces in protected time for every medical professional where they can come together to talk about the emotional impact of their work.
We want the government to understand the necessity of prevention. We have already met with Nadine Dorries and we were even mentioned in the House of Commons by Gareth Johnson. But there is so much more we can do in our quest to help reduce suicide in medical professionals.
“We support the mental wellbeing of the medical workforce through facilitated talking and listening spaces.”
As a charity our values are:
We treat everyone in our groups, and ourselves, with compassion and care.
We say what we do and do what we say. We talk about mental health and break down stigma.
We care for and support all participants of our programmes, our facilitators and our speakers, encouraging them all to take time to reflect on their experiences.
Why act now?
In light of COVID-19 it is imperative that we work to improve mental health support for doctors and other healthcare workers and stop needless loss of life through suicide.
In England, every week, two health professionals die through suicide and one doctor every three weeks.
