My Whole Self

On Friday 18th March, ATM will be supporting My Whole Self, a campaign for workplace culture change from Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) England.

Wherever you are working from, feeling supported to choose to bring your whole self to work is better for wellbeing and better for business.

The Centre for Mental Health estimates that 10 million people may need mental health support as a result of the pandemic.

As the way we work has changed over the last two years, it is vital that workplaces, whether virtual or in person, support their staff to bring their whole selves to work.

Workplaces are key to creating a society where everyone’s mental health matters.

Bringing together diversity and inclusion with health and wellbeing will drive a positive transformation in workplace mental health and performance.

My Whole Self aims to create workplace cultures where people have the safety and freedom to choose which parts of their identity they share at work, without fear of judgement.

In 2022 we shouldn't feel like we must leave parts of our identity behind – be that our cultural or ethnic background, gender identity, sexuality, disability, or health.

We’re supporting #MyWholeSelf because everyone should be able to bring their whole self to work – it’s better for our wellbeing and for business. Get involved by downloading MHFA England’s free resources here.
