Chasing the Stigma

We have partnered with the national mental health charity, Chasing the Stigma, to deliver its Ambassadors of Hope mental health training programme to all of our staff.

Ambassadors of Hope is a training programme, giving staff a better understanding of mental health and advice on providing signposting to those who need help via the free Hub of Hope app. 

- “M&Y are sending a rallying call out to their peers and other organisations in their sector. Our partnership highlights that M&Y are acknowledging the presence and importance of mental health in everyone from board members and staff, through to the customers using their services.”
