We spend a huge proportion of our time at work so it’s not surprising that employers can play a major role in employees’ mental wellbeing. Taking workplace wellbeing seriously benefits individuals but it makes sound business sense too: evidence shows we are less productive, more likely to be off sick and more likely to seek work elsewhere if we’re not being supported in the workplace. Initiatives that raise awareness, start conversations and break down stigma around mental health are the foundation for any organisation that wants to be a good employer.
Founded in 2017, The Photography Movement is a not-for-profit organisation, fostering a community spirit where individuals of all ages can discuss mental wellbeing through the medium of photography (a proven therapeutic means of combatting anxiety and depression). Breaking the silence around the sensitive subject of mental health, The Photography Movement also raises awareness and funds for charity partners.
In collaboration with Mental Health UK, The Photography Movement presents the ‘Let’s Talk’ wellbeing programme, expertly designed to open conversations and promote better understanding around mental health in the workplace.
‘Let’s Talk’ is a renowned national campaign by photographer Charlie Clift – a series of fearless portraits where the subject’s most private thoughts are depicted on their faces by artist Kate Forrester.
The ‘Let’s Talk’ wellbeing campaign is available to all organisations. Bespoke packages are created to complement your company’s wellbeing programme, encouraging and enabling people to share the story of how they feel.
The Photography Movement starts the conversation and inspires others to compose, connect and communicate.
