Melin has joined Welsh Government’s movement to end the stigma around mental health problems by signing up to the Time To Change Wales initiative.

Signing the pledge isn’t a throw away signature from us, it has shaped our policies and processes and has led to initiatives which have had a positive impact for our staff.

In this video you will see how, since signing the pledge in 2014, we have acknowledged that we can have a positive impact on our staff, and the services they provide our residents, by making a focus on mental well-being something that is part of our DNA. Staff know that it is ok, not to be ok, but more than that, they feel safe to say so, and they know that there are resources available to them which may help.
