A commitment to removing the stigma of mental health issues has seen the university sign the Time to Change pledge.

Run by leading charities, Mind and Rethink Mental Illness, Time to Change is England's biggest programme for challenging mental health stigma and discrimination.

Anne Poulson, Chief Operating Officer, signed the pledge on behalf of Greenwich (pictured). She says: "By signing we are making clear our determination to ending the stigma around mental health issues.

"We are fully committed to creating an inclusive environment at Greenwich so staff and students can achieve their potential.

"There is already much good work done at the university in this area but the Time to Change pledge formalises what is already in place, as well as highlighting new initiatives. These include better training for staff so they are better able to help those with mental health issues."

The pledge has been put together by the Student Wellbeing Mental Health team, the Students' Union and colleagues from across the university.
