How to Support See Change this September 2023


See Change is Ireland’s organisation dedicated to ending mental health stigma. Their work is informed by people with lived experiences of mental health difficulties, who are best placed to give insight into mental health stigma.

See Change goal is to help facilitate a cultural shift in workplaces so that employers and employees feel supported and secure in starting a discussion about how mental health can affect each one of us. See Change aim is to create a workplace environment where people can be open and positive about their own and others’ mental health.

See Change Working Pledge

Prior to signing the See Change workplace pledge, organisations must complete an action plan detailing how the organisation plans to achieve the six steps of the programme.

See Change has developed a six step pledge programme to help Irish workplaces create an open culture around mental health and play a role in challenging mental health stigma. By signing up to the See Change workplace pledge, organisations are showing that they are committed to creating an open culture around mental health for managers and employees.

UCD is currently working toward See Change Working Pledge. The following booklets and guides have been provided as resources for our staff and students.
