SBT is a Mental Health Committed Employer

Last week, the Mental Health Charter certified Sarah Buckley Therapies as a mental health committed employer. We have signed the mental health workplace pledge, which means we have committed to:

  • Recognising that mental health challenges can be an issue within the workplace and employees may need support
  • Talking openly, respectfully and positively about mental health
  • Getting the conversation started around mental health and recognising we all have mental health, just like we have physical health
  • Actively supporting and informing our employees affected by mental health challenges

Experiencing a mental health challenge is hard enough. Fear of judgement, shame and isolation just makes it that much harder. That’s why we’re working with the Mental Health Charter to end mental health stigma and discrimination.

Come and work for SBT!

SBT gets back to work – with pizza!

After our usual August break, SBT was back to work last week, working on our service development plan and preparing to return to schools this week.

But that seemed like a good excuse for a pizza break on Friday! Joining us for the occasion was new starter Iris Chung, who graduated from the University of Essex last year but has been braving lockdown in Hong Kong for the past year.

Also back was office manager Rebecca Kemsley, who is currently on maternity leave and brought baby Astrid to meet everyone! Great to see you again, Rebecca!
