Bar Council pledges to tackle mental health stigma

On 19 February 2018, Malcolm Cree (CEO of the Bar Council) and Vanessa Davies (Director-General of the Bar Standards Board) signed the #TimeToChange pledge to ensure that we support our own employees’ wellbeing as well as that of the profession.

Time to Change is a national campaign aimed at reducing the stigma of mental ill health in the workplace. In line with this, the Bar Council provides a Wellbeing Policy, Volunteering Policy, and a range of physical and mental health and wellbeing-related initiatives for its employees.
